Most of all, try and encourage them, the more that get through that initial "what the hell am I doing this for?" period and become dedicated "this is a helluva lot of fun!" commuters the more potential for better facilities for cyclists in general.


:D :D Good one! I wasn't even riding this time last year but thanks to encouragement from other riders and people on this forum I'm still at it and loving it. Good bike karma is worth it :)

If you carry spares and see someone with a flat, help them out. Do the 'bike wave'. Slow down a little when passing if you're a 30kph+ type rider.

That there is a great point, X.

Can I just say that whenever I've bumped into noobies I've been on a PB attempt and chocked out pearls of wisdom like "keep at it - it'll get easier" as I've powered past them. This has not left me feeling great afterwards :oops: :oops:

Hopefully I've counteracted this with the noobie rides I'm running for the noobs at my workplace. :mrgreen:

:lol: that's gold
Interesting how very few people ride past a lady with a flat.
