Top Tips for Summer Commuting 

Travelling to work can be stressful at the best of times, but we have a few great tips that could help you this Summer
 
Swindon Travel Choices
Very few people tend to enjoy the commute to work every morning, what with the day to day stresses of late buses, traffic jams, and leaves on the line.
 
But those lovely folks at Swindon Travel Choices have put together a few great tips that might just make things that little bit easier for you.
 
Top Tips for Summer Commuting
 
1. Keep an eye on the condition of your tyres. High temperatures aggravate any existing damage to the rubber. Under-inflation adds to the problem causing friction and more heat which can prove too much for weak spots, causing punctures and blow-outs.
 
2. Hayfever is particularly bad in the summer and if you sneeze at 70mph you lose your vision for as much as 100 metres. Consider a car share partner who can drive on days that the pollen levels are high. See www.carshareswindon.com to find a car share partner going your way.
 
3. If you're finding the bus too stuffy, jump off a few stops early and walk the extra distance. It'll clear your head and make you feel much better!

4. Never ride a scooter or moped with any flesh on show! Abrasion injuries can be as dangerous and painful as third degree burns.
 
5. Panniers are better on a bike than wearing a backpack in warmer weather. Keep your back cool and avoid those sweaty patches on the back of your t-shirt!
