Puncture resistant tyres, pump/CO2 bomb, spare tubes and knowing how to fix a flat help.

Drive? your normal route with a cyclist mindset, note all the good and bad bits.
Do a few rides to work and back on offroster days at slowish pace to fine tune your basic route. It will evolve over time.

On your first day, allow plenty of time. Wouldn't look good to the boss if you were late. :wink:
