    Sunglasses! I still sometimes forget them and regret it every time!

    What if you are afraid to ride a bike? I’m scared of getting hit by a car or falling off or crashing into something? You seem so confident when you ride- any tips for getting over it?

      It takes practice. If you can ride on trails that don’t have cars, that’s a good place to start. Portland has a 40 mile loop for bikes. We practiced there a lot in the beginning. I’m still nervous about going fast down hills–I hate it. Especially with traffic around me…

    Very cool post. I’ll be linking to it shorty from my blog as this is really good info for new bikers.

    Something else to add and confirm… GET BIKE SHORTS! They really do work! Also, a bike shirt makes the difference too. I was wearing compression shirts but was getting really constricted and hot and the bike shirts with front zipper are ALL win!
