Making your bicycle commute a rewarding and safe experience

Commuting to work on your bicycle in Washington can be an excellent way for you to simultaneously enjoy nature, get some exercise and save on valuable resources like money or fuel for your car. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we have been able to help victims of bicycle accidents in their efforts to get compensation for their injuries. 

Putting adequate preparation into your commute is important in your efforts to keep yourself safe and to have an enjoyable and efficient ride. Before you leave on your first commute, do some research about the best route for getting to work on a bicycle. Perhaps there are some roads that are safer than others or have designated bike lanes. There may also be routes that are faster than others. You may enjoy having a couple of different routes so depending on the day and how you feel, you can change up your route to enjoy the different scenery. 

According to Cycling Weekly, one tip to incorporate is to pack lightly and find a way to transport your luggage that is comfortable for you and does not obstruct your ability to move freely and safely control your bike. Choosing to invest in a bicycle that is durable and reliable, as well as a good helmet, proper footwear and a bike lock is important too. Each of those items is basic but critical to your safety and the well-being of your bike. Expert bike commuters also recommend that you leave a dry change of clothing at work in case inclement weather has left you wet from your ride. 

When you are prepared to bike to work, you can be more confident in your ride and spend less time worrying about your safety and well-being. For more information, if you have been injured in a bicycle accident, visit our web page.
