I am planning to start commuting by bike in the next couple of weeks and was hoping for some advice.
My main concern is the distance (17 miles each way) and my fitness level, so I plan to ride the route at the weekend. I rode 20 miles last weekend which was fine except for a bit of saddle soreness.
I've bought a hybrid with road friendly tires and no suspension. I also bought a lock, pump, water bottle, puncture kit and tyre levers. I am planning to pick up some shorts, gloves and a spare tube this weekend.
Is there any other kit I should get before I start out?
