Next week we are going to embark on many activities and events, before we would like to remind you of some basic safety tips when using a bicycle
Wear a Helmet
Only in the U.S. more than 6,000 cyclists need emergency care for head injuries each year. Choose a well-fitting helmet.
A good training could be only to pedal about 30 minutes on flat terrain during the first three or four weeks.
Dress for Comfort
Choose comfortable clothes.
Go Bright When there is only Low Light 😉
Try not to ride at night, but if necessary, make use of the lights.
Always Use Good Road Sense
Respect all traffic signs and norms. It’s well worth while for everyone.
If there is heavy traffic, ride in the lane with the cars, not to the side.
Use your Brakes Adequately
For optimal pressure, put your hands at the ends of the levers. Apply firm pressure to the brakes.
Get In Gear
Try not to pedal in high gear during long periods to avoid pressure on your knees.
Taking these simple tips into account, you’ll get more enjoyment out of biking!
