Knocked off your bike? Call the injury lawyers in Wells-Next-The-Sea
There is a lot to be said for taking up cycling as a means of not only losing a few excess pounds, but also getting from A to B cheaply and easily. Many towns and cities have embraced this popular form of transport and invested their budgets in dedicated cycle paths and cycle ways; allowing cyclists to ride safely and enjoyably around the area.
With the rising costs of fuel and running a car, the advantages of investing in a decent bike to get around are easy to understand. However, it is important to remember that although choosing the correct bike for your frame and purpose is essential, it is worth taking extra time to ensure that you also purchase the correct accessories for safer cycling.
Keeping safe whilst pedaling
A few basic pieces of equipment can make your journeys by bike safer and more enjoyable, particularly if you need to cycle in the early mornings or early evenings when the natural daylight is poor.
- headlights and rear lights fitted to the bicycle that can be switched on and off as required. Flashing lights are not advisable, as they do not emit enough light to be suitable for cyclists to see and be seen by.
- a high visibility jacket or band can make considerable difference to your visibility to other road users. Wearing clothes that are reflective means that you can be seen long before the vehicle approaches you.
- a correctly fitted and approved cycling helmet is important to ensure that your head and skull are protected from the impact of a collision or fall from the bike. Whilst they are not guaranteed to prevent injury, the composition and design of a cycling helmet means that impact is cushioned and the head remains stable in the helmet reducing the likelihood of serious head injury.
- Sensible clothing and footwear to ensure that your body is adequately protected in the event of an accident or fall from the bike.
