BikeLife Tucson 7 Boosters for Biking Banner BikeLife Tucson Welcome 5 TIPS for commuting by bike These tips come courtesy of Duncan Benning owner of Transit Cycles. 1. Plan and practice your route use Google or a good old-fashioned paper map like the centerfold of this magazine to plan the best way to get where you are going. 2. Find a buddy Riding with friends is almost always better than riding alone. 3. Communicate with your fellow road users. Let other cyclists know when you are passing them with a friendly alert. And in general let people cyclists pedestrians and motorists know what you are doing by telling them or using hand signals. 4. Carry stuff. You can add a basket for less than 30 and you can add a rack and rear bag called a pannier for less than 80. 5. Have a good time. This should be number one.
