Alley Cat Or Street Dog? Bike Commuting Shortcuts!

- Advertisement -

Welcome back to Friday Bike Fun! Today, we welcome back BikeBlogger, who’s going to be telling us about bike commuting shortcuts.

Here’s what BikeBlogger has to say about Bike Commuting shortcuts

Are you an alley cat or street dog? Do you use alleyways as shortcuts during your bike commute?

Alleys may save you time on your trip especially in defense of urban districts where there are many one way streets. But there are some things to watch out for when cycling down an alley.

  • Alleys can be dark or not as well lit as the streets. Always ride with bright bike lights.
  • Alleys may have more potholes and glass and debris. Always keep your tires inflated to the recommended air pressure to avoid a flat.
  • Alleys have many driveways and blind spots, so go slow. The speed limit is often less than the streets.
  • Alleys are sometimes narrow and can be blocked by trash trucks. Use caution.
