Chapter 1 REASONS FOR COMMUTING BY BIKE

“I’ll get all sweaty”

For most people it probably takes a good 10-15 minutes of relatively hard exertion to lather up a sweat. If you don’t want to arrive at your destination all hot and flustered, don’t pedal so hard, freewheel so you can to catch a cooling breeze, or use a Dutch-style bike or a beach cruiser, both built for going slow. Emma Osborne, a cycling officer for British routes building charity Sustrans, said: “Cycling from A to B doesn’t have to mean you arrive dishevelled at your destination. Cycling doesn’t have to be a race – you can take it at your own pace without having to work up a sweat or don Lycra cycling wear.”
