Cycling is a great way to get exercise, clear your mind after work, help the environment, and see the little things in Whistler that you may miss otherwise.
Here are some tips to help make your ride as smooth as possible.
- Pack your bag the night before to reduce preparation time in the morning, plan your route, and find a friend. Commuting can be more fun if you have someone to share the experience with. You can also encourage each other to continue riding on days when you'd rather not.
- Consider light for both the front and rear of your bike. Not all parts of the Valley Trail are lit at night. And your mother was right; you should wear a helment.
Consider the Weather
- Whistler is a mountain town and weather can be unpredictable. Leave an extra change of clothes at work, just in case you get caught in the rain or snow.
Bike Storage around Whistler
