Advice for new cyclists

Summer is the time when new cyclists hit the streets. This is great because the more cyclists there are, the better.src=http://www.activetrans.org/sites/default/files/group_0.jpg

If you know someone who's saddling up for the first time, you should consider yourself an ambassador for the cause.

The most recent issue of Active Trans’ newsletter, Modeshift, contains an article with great suggestions on how to help new cyclist develop good skills. 

And of course, don't forget this piece of advice that applies to cyclists of all experience levels: Take it slow and drink lots of water when the temperatures surge upward.
