Get the Gear You’ll need a helmet, a reflector, leg straps to keep your pants from getting caught in the wheels and a backpack to replace your usual bag.

Map Your Route Figure out the best way to avoid hills and busy areas, then take a practice run so you know how long it takes.

Store Your Ride Buy a lock if you plan to keep it outside. Look into storage methods at your company, such as a garage or even keeping it in a corner of the office.
