Obviously a good thing!
The important part of cycling to work is to start.
The second most important thing is probably to realise that you don’t have to do it every day.
Some people buy ‘all the gear’ others just set off in their everyday clothes.
If people decide to cycle only when it’s sunny, that’s fine.
People wanting to cycle when it’s raining will buy waterproofs. Those wanting to keep riding to work through the colder months will get warmer clothing and more layers – gloves are important (and good socks).
