Get on Your Bike and Ride: Commuting Tips

commute Get on Your Bike and Ride: Commuting Tips

Now that we know about the bicycle’s safety, utilitarian value, speed, bonuses to health, ability to alleviate a region’s suffering in a crisis, and benefits to work environments, it’s a good time to look at some practical how-to-commute sites.

21st Century Citizen has done a lot of the work for us, and compiled a variety of great commuting-related resources. We’ve added some of our own.

    Kogswell Cycles makes hearty bikes along the lines of the rigs of 1950’s French newspaper delivery boys.
    Bakfietsen are super-practical errand runners and haulers Carectomy recently featured. These are the mini-vans of the bike world, great for the family’s around-town needs.
    WikiHow has some really good, step-by-step instructions for getting into bike commuting.
    Commute by Bike offers a comprehensive list of appropriate machines. EHow also has resources for those ready to research a bike purchase.
    To keep riding after sundown, you’ll need lights. Harris Cyclery has articles on everything from lighting reviews to gear inches for the true bike dorks out there. They’re also a retailer with a storefront in Newton, Massachusetts and plenty of online purchasing options. Harris Cyclery specializes in hard-to-find components and is a clearinghouse of answers to the most obscure cycling questions.

    Flickr’s Commute by Bicycle photo group will inspire you to get out and ride, and will show you how other people are going about their bike-business.

Lots of good cross-referenced reading materials there to get you up to speed on bike commuting (and to take away most of your excuses). Check our upcoming coverage of winter riding tips.

Parking structures could be a good thing, if implemented correctly.

Think of frontier towns in the old west where you had to leave your guns at the Sherriff’s office while you were in town.

Build the parking structures.
At the edge of town.
Next to the train and bus stations.
Next to the roads for bikes and pedestrians.

Then depave the city.

Parking garages could be good things. Like lock up for dangerous weapons.

I don’t necessarily think that it’s a “hideous-looking structure”. I see it more as a colorful and artistic looking structure.
It certainly doesn’t look any worse than a standard plain concrete parking garage anyway. I’d say if anything it will add some character to the street corner.
