Commuting by bike can be exhilarating, empowering, and useful. It's a way to discover a new appreciation for the city you live in, a way to save gas and parking money, and a way to exercise without it feeling like exercise.
How do you start?
We've put together a package of some of our best selling and most practical items to make it simple to commute by bike—and not break the bank. These are favorites of ours that can stand up to the abuse of daily commuting. Much of what we're listing is used daily by our staff of urban cyclists.
The best part is that a bike and all the accessories you'll need to start commuting comes in under $1000.
