Smart ways to ride
Riding a bike to work should be easy and fun. It shouldn’t be over complicated. Smart ways to ride has three simple steps to get you riding. Here’s step one:
Step 1 – Find your ride
You don’t need to have the latest and greatest bike. You will be surprised about what you can find in a family or friend’s shed or garage.
If that’s no good, you can also try secondhand or chat to your local bike shop about an easy ride.
Step 2 – Plan your ride
If you’re riding to work for the first time, you might like to find somewhere off the road like a bike path or shared trail. You can find these by searching the bike icon in Google Maps. Check out our guide on how to plan a bike route for more.
But don’t get immersed in the maps—get out there and find your way. It’s a good way to find new places to ride and build confidence.
Another hot tip is to chat to friends or work colleagues that live in a similar area. Maybe you could ride together?
Step 3 – Enjoy your ride
Get pedalling and have fun. It’s that simple.
As the nice weather rolls in there is no better time to enjoy actively commuting to work.
Take time to enjoy the simple moments – the wind in your hair, a crisp clear morning, the feeling of freedom, the green flow of traffic lights.
Not only will you save time and money, you’ll be happier and healthier for it.
