Bike Commuting Is Fun And Cheap!
Is the daily commute wearing you down? Through-the-roof gas prices; traffic jams; non-existent parking; lovely mornings and afternoons wasted inside your vehicle—what's there to do? Commute by bike! It's fun, it's fast, it's easy, it saves money, reduces global warming, and keeps you healthy and happy, too!

Today's Cycling Tip
Practice Before Riding Clipless – When you upgrade to clipless pedals, don’t immediately hit the road or trail. Instead, spend fifteen minutes or so getting used to the entry and release action of the pedals. To do this, just straddle the bike and click your right foot in and out many times. Then repeat with your left foot. The idea is to train the muscle memory so that when you’re actually riding, your feet will move the right way when you need to get them out of the pedals. A little practice before you ride goes a long way towards preventing a fall.
