Cycling in an urban environment can be a little different when you are used to being in the open countryside. It's important to always be prepared and one way of doing this is to plan your routes. This can help you incorporate more bike paths and avoid highly congested areas. Apart from the obvious of having a bike, there is actually not that much equipment an urban cyclist needs. We would also advise a helmet, lights and a lock in case you need to do some shopping. Finally, remember to stick to the rules of the road and treat other road users as you'd wish to be treated yourself.
