Cycling in this part of the country opens the door to many more rural areas locally. Barr Beacon is a high point in the area, but there are other quieter and more pleasant areas cyclists can enjoy in and around Walsall as well.
How to stay safe while cycling
Obviously it does pay dividends to keep an eye on what is happening around you when you are out cycling. A crash helmet should be a prerequisite when you are out, and you can also make sure you wear bright clothing so you are visible in all weathers.
However, even if you are the safest cyclist around, you still never know if you might be involved in an accident. You could end up being injured if a driver clips you as you are riding, or if they decide to turn left in front of you, causing you to crash in the process. Injuries for cyclists can potentially be quite serious, even when they are wearing a helmet at the time. Broken bones, cuts and bruises are all more than within the realm of possibility.
