Friday is National Ride Your Bike to Work Day. With gas prices increasing and the weather warming up, now is a great time to try riding your bike to work — like I did.
If you do plan to bike to work there are some things that you should keep in mind to prepare:
- Plan your route: Look up ahead of time what trails and streets you need to take to get to work
- Wear safety gear: We all know how important it is to wear a helmet but wearing reflective clothing is also important so cars can see you.
- Check the weather: Check the weather before you ride so you know if you’ll need a raincoat.
- Bring a change of clothes: No one wants to sit in their sweaty clothes all day and depending on how far you have to bike having a clean set of clothes to change into is essential.
