Commuting by bike – injury expertss in Roydon
For both your health and the environment, cycling to work every day is much better than taking your car or public transport. A lot of people enjoy getting this exercise every day as well, as it prepares you for the working day by waking you up and getting you energised, and means that you don’t need to take in any extra exercise later in the day. It is a quicker way of getting around than waiting for public transport, which often has issues at rush hour, and if you ride your bike to work you will save money in the long run as well.
Here are some tips on making your commute enjoyable and safe each day.
- Find the right route. The route that your car or public transport would take you to work is unlikely to be the safest or the most pleasant. Because you have the freedom of your bike you should find that you can choose much more enjoyable routes to take you in. If there is a park on your way to work then you could cut through here, or go alongside rivers and canals which are guaranteed to be quieter and safer. If you do live in a busy town or city then try to find a route which incorporates as many bike lanes as possible.
- Do a test run. Don’t start your cycling commute on a Monday morning, as you won’t know the route well enough and will not be ready for the volume of traffic you are likely to encounter. Choose a weekend or holiday day and head out at roughly the same time, to find out how long your route takes you, and any problems you may come across.
- Find somewhere to store your bike. There is no point getting to work and then finding that there is nowhere to keep your bike. Ask around to find out where you can safely chain your bike and whether there is anywhere in the building that it can be stored for the day.
