Know your rides, don’t just measure your distance and speed. See how your ride intersects with a city full of riders. Identify the hazards and bottle-necks.

Plan your routes. Don’t let map software plot your course. Carve a path based on how other cyclists move.

Connect and be noticed. Don’t ride alone. Keep your independence while you connect with other cyclists that share your commute.
