Why should you ride you bicycle everyday? You get exercise, you save time and money along with reducing your carbon footprint!! Right now saving money is the BIGGEST plus. I did the math, if you have a 16 gallon tank you will be spending around $70 to fill up at $4.20 a gallon here in Los Angeles, for a lot of people that is once a week that equals out to around $280 a month
What do you Need to do to start riding????
-Go to your local bicycle store, take your existing bike in for a tuneup or talk to a sales person about making a purchase. We suggest a hybrid to our new commuters. Hybrids have the riders sitting in a more upright position, they usually come with comfortable seats, a front shock along with a shock on the seatpost, they come with street tires to make the commute easier. You will see a lot of the more professional commuters riding on Road bikes and Fixed Gears. Make sure to pickup a good lock, helmet, tire repair kit, a pump and front and rear lights.
-Pick a safe route, here in Los Angeles you can find the local bike paths on www.bicyclela.org.
Danger. Wear a helmet, stick to bike paths and routes or side streets and be smart, and you should be safe every time you go out. If you ride at night make sure you have front and rear lights. Also keep your bike in good maintenance. Sweat. Bring a change of clothes or renovate to include a shower in your workspace, Bicycling clothes also help to keep you dry. Time. Depending on your current commute, it might take a little longer, I have found that on some days it is the same amount of time as driving or 10 minutes more depending. Time yourself to see the actual difference? Carrying Stuff. You can always use your car on those days you cannot avoid it, There are special commuter bags and racks that can be attached to your bike.
Bicycle commuting is a great way to start and end your day, get some regular exercise, and save some money. If you are smart about it, it’s safe, fun and speedy.
