After all the false starts, summer is finally here. Now that the weather is nicer, cycling to work feels much more pleasant. Still, before jumping on your bike it’s worth bearing these little pointers in mind…
— Wear a helmet: this season’s must have!
— Make sure your bike is right for you: a well-fitted bike reduces the risk of back pain and injuries while improving your cycling performance
— Flat as a pancake: flat tyres are common, so bring a repair kit. No one wants to be carrying their bike home in the summer heat!
— Accidents happen: just in case, bring some ID. If the worst does happen and you’re not conscious, ID can help a great deal
— Glow in the dark: help yourself and other drivers out when cycling at night – stick some high vis on!
