Bicycle commuting is becoming more and more popular as a way to both get to work in an environmentally friendly manner and sneak in an extra workout. Let’s take a look at a few tips for getting started with bike commuting.
Bike Commuting Tip #1: Have the Right Safety Gear
To bike to work safely, it’s absolutely crucial that you have the right type of safety gear. First and foremost is a helmet that’s in good condition. Additionally, you’ll need to make sure that you’re fully visible to cars, other bikers, and pedestrians. If you plan to ride when it’s not fully light outside, make sure that you have lights and reflectors for both the front and back of your bicycle, and consider a reflective vest, too.
