Biking to Work: Tips & Tricks From Steve Davis

Biking to work is a fantastic way to combine your daily commute with a healthy workout, save on gas, and reduce pollution. If you're considering making the switch to bicycle commuting: here are some suggestions from the Bio::Neos CEO, Steve Davis, to ensure a smooth and enjoyable ride.


  1. Helmet: Safety first! A helmet is crucial to protect your head in case of an accident.
  2. Sunglasses- Opt for wrap-around sunglasses to shield your eyes from gnats, the sun, and wind.
  3. Bag- Invest in a good-quality bike bag with lots of storage. If you’re just starting out, a backpack works great too! Look for one with separate compartments to keep your lunch from leaking onto your work documents or clothes.
  4. Shoes- Choose comfortable shoes designed for cycling. If you have clip-in pedals, make sure your shoes are compatible.
  5. Bike Shirt/Shorts- Wear a moisture-wicking bike shirt and shorts for comfort during your ride and pack your clothes for the work day to change into once you reach!
  6. Warmth Accessories- In cooler weather, cover your ears with a headband, wear mittens, and use shoe covers to keep your feet warm and dry.


  • Route- Plan your route ahead of time. Use bike-friendly paths and roads with dedicated bike lanes to ensure a safer journey. Avoid hills on your way there! 
  • Clean-Up Plan- If your workplace has a shower, pack your toiletries and a towel. Alternatively, baby wipes can be a quick and effective way to freshen up. A nearby gym shower can also be an option. Keeping work shoes and deodorant at your desk can lessen your bag weight when biking! 


  1. Combine Transportation and Workout- Biking to work is an excellent way to integrate exercise into your daily routine, making it easier to stay fit without extra trips to the gym.
  2. Save on Gas- Reduce your fuel expenses by switching from a car to a bike. You’ll notice that you’re filling up your tank a lot less often!
  3. Less Pollution- Contribute to a cleaner environment by reducing your carbon footprint.


Biking to work can transform your daily commute into a rewarding and energizing experience. With the right equipment and a solid plan, you'll be ready to hit the road with confidence. Enjoy the ride!
