During the fuel crunch last year, ScopeCreep and I were debating ways to make the commute in a different way than our gas guzzling Ford Explorer and Pickup trucks. We hit on bicycling. What would one need to pack to do this?
Why Bike to Work?
- Get in Shape
- Save $
- Help the Environment
- Very sweaty way to arrive at work.
- Reduced carrying capacity
- Live far away
- Bad neighborhoods
- Prepare for flats, breakdowns, falls.
Bike Equipment Needed
- Tire repair kit
- Bike light
- Water bottle
-2nd pair of biking clothes? (assuming 1st pair is too rank to put back on)
-Hygiene kit: Towel, soap, deodorant, flip flops, etc
Have you every biked to work? How did it work out? What did we leave off?
