As the nation swelters under a nearly-unbearable dome of heat, many may wonder if the temperature will ever drop enough to allow for a comfortable bike ride… That day is bound to come, and when it does, fitsugar.com has a few tips toward getting to work via bicycle. These simple steps mostly boil down to following common sense and putting some effort into planning your trip. For example, using a basket or a rack makes a backpack unnecessary—thus allowing your body to breath and perhaps helping you avoid some embarrassing sweat stains when you get to the office. An additional wardrobe tip recommends that women opt for leaving the heels on during the bike ride. Not only is it easier to ride a bike in heels than it is to walk, but it also allows you to avoid changing shoes upon arrival. As for safety, keeping your gaze fixed on the tires of nearby cars makes for a better sense of what a driver is about to do, and allowing yourself to slow down and enjoy the ride is the best way to get the most out of your trip and also ensure that you get their in one piece.
