As lockdown restrictions ease, the UK government is encouraging commuters to take to two wheels to ease pressure on public transport.

If you’re planning on pedalling to work, there are plenty of benefits — increased fitness, a more enjoyable journey and even tax savings if you buy a bicycle via the Cycle to Work scheme.

However, plenty of new cycle commuters will need advice before they set off.

Live Q&A

To help you navigate the journey ahead, the FT’s social policy correspondent Robert Wright will be online taking questions from readers on Wednesday May 27 at 12 noon UK time.

Maybe you would like to ask about the best type of bike for commuting, or the safety equipment you should buy? Perhaps you would like to share tips for less confident cyclists about how to handle traffic in big cities, or tell us about the best cycling apps?

An experienced cyclist, Robert is gearing up to debate the merits of puncture-proof tyres, electric bikes and much more with FT readers. Leave a comment below ahead of the session.
