The First Commute

Starting to commute is a chicken and egg conundrum.

On one hand, people fear bike commuting although they are generally interested because of fear for their safety. On the other hand, if you don't take the first step out, you won't gain the experience necessary to understand how traffic responds to a cyclist. However, unlike the theoretical chicken and egg scenario, there is a solution.

Taking the first step by riding even short distances can help you gain the necessary confidence. In order to ride safely, you must ride more, to understand wherein lies the dangers of commuting on the road, as well as to understand how to tackle the many challenges.
