Newbie from NZ

Hi, just joined this forum. I'm from New Zealand, Auckland. been riding for a while now on a road bike. This year just bought a hybrid bike while will try to cycle to work while at the same time, lose some weight. hope to pick up a few tips as a commuter and keep a lookout of essential urban riding gears and must haves. cheers

Welcome!

For starters commuting it helps to be very vigilant of your surroundings while riding and never to trust that a motorist is aware of you or will give you space. A must-have is a good U-lock for locking up when you park it!
Stay safe!
