On July 17, 2012, commuter bike manufacturer and distributor, Linus Bikes, reminds cyclists that they shouldn’t let the summer heat discourage them from riding their Linus bike. A Linus bike is meant to be ridden year round, in order to maintain a healthy life style. Weather should not be an issue if proper precautions are taken during your bike ride. According to care2.com bike riders can follow some useful hints to stay cool and professional for their morning commute.
Maintaining a steady riding schedule while also looking professional can be difficult. Becky Striepe, long time cyclist and blogger, said in the article, “I learned a few simple tricks that helped me transform from sweaty cyclist to office casual on even the hottest days.” In extreme heat one should wear lightly layered clothes instead of their business clothes. It’s better to have a change of clothes to put on once the ride is over.
Any ride, even in the harshest conditions, can go smoothly with the proper gear at hand. Wearing something like a backpack can make the ride hotter than it has to be. Linus Bike provides different kinds of accessories for carrying important things on any bike. A basket or saddle bag will help keep valuables safely on the bike.
The article advises that the most important thing to remember is safety. Riders should keep hydrated and wear protective clothing, too. Sweat bands and moisture-wicking clothing should be worn to absorb the majority of the sweat. Even in the hot summer any cyclist can stay green and healthy if they peddle with caution.
Linus Bikes is a California-based bicycle manufacturer that specializes in creating vintage style city bikes and commuter bikes. Not simply a bicycle company, Linus Bikes sells a complete line of accessories for the environmentally conscious and for those who have a fondness for European style bicycles and the great tradition of European cycling.
