Start with a tune up. Take care of your bike; your bike will take care of you.
Maximize your roll. Tire inflation to the correct pressure can make a huge difference in the energy you'll expend riding.
It's all about the fit. Make sure your helmet fits, using the 2 x 2 x 2 rule. Replace old or damaged helmets.
Fuel your ride. Pack snacks and water, and electrolyte tablets or powdersadded to your water can reduce muscle cramping and fatigue.
Light it up. Bike lights make you more visible to drivers, even in daylight hours. Bright & reflective clothing helps you to be seen, too.
Don't forget the sunscreen and sunglasses: protect your eyes and your skin rom the sun's rays.
