Help with a cycling injury claim in West Dorset
West Dorset has some fantastic scenery and you could enjoy it the best by taking a cycling tour thorough it.
On the way, you’ll see some lovely beaches, fantastic seascapes and great countryside. There’s lots of nice places to stay, from little cottages to five star hotels, or you could camp and take your tent with you.
There are also plenty of great places to eat – pub food is great, or there’s fish and chips on the beach, fabulous restaurants, and very cost effective cafes.
To plan your cycling holiday, you can take a planned tour. The advantages being that they will often take all your luggage on ahead by coach for you so you’re not weighed down. They will also of course have routes all arranged, and know exactly where to stop for a nice lunch.
Or you could plan it all yourself, which means that you can stop if you see something interesting, and take it at your own pace. You’re also free to choose your own dinner destination, and if you feel like taking a day off from cycling, you don’t have to ask permission!
Take care when cycling
When you’re cycling every day like this, you need to make sure that you are reasonably fit and that you don’t have any nagging old injuries. Stretch properly before getting on your bike and take a break every so often.
Stay hydrated, stay alert, and make sure that you follow the rules of the road. Of course, you should also make sure that you don’t drink alcohol while or before cycling.
If you’re not sure about a crossing or round about, sometimes it can bet better to get off the bike and walk. Never cycle on a pavement, as a collision with a pedestrian can be quite painful for both parties.
Sometimes accidents aren’t your fault
However careful you are, sometimes another vehicle is not so careful.
- A car may not see you at a crossing, or may stop suddenly.
- Passengers opening car doors suddenly as you cycle up the side of a car can be a problem.
- As a cyclist you can be quite vulnerable and accidents can result in concussion and serious broken bones.
Whatever caused your accident, if it isn’t your fault, you may be able to get compensation.
