Some of the people that live in Breckland, may find that their favourite form of transport is a bicycle. Those who are using a bike to get around, will know that biking can at times be dangerous. Because of this, it helps to take a bit of pre-emptive action, so that the risk of injury can be reduced.
Reducing the chances of a cycling related injury
One of the best ways to reduce the risk of injury, whilst riding a bike, is to use your bike on designated cycle routes. That is because when you are using cycle routes, you are avoiding cars a lot of the time. When you are not near cars, you reduce the chances of being involved in a road traffic collision.
A key point to note, is that when riding around cars, you might accidentally place yourself in a blind spot. A blind spot relates to a location outside of a car, that the mirrors do not cover.
That means you may, unfortunately, be struck by a car if you’re in one of these locations. Generally if you can’t see the mirrors, the car driver can’t see you. This however, is not always that case, and in some cases you may be hard to see, even if you can see the mirrors.
A lot of the accidents that affect cyclists tend to result in head injuries. It is important, therefore, that cyclists wear helmets in order to protect themselves from head injuries in the event of an accident.
