Cycling, whether it is a daily activity or an occasional leisure pursuit, will help you to stay fit and healthy. Unfortunately, staying safe on your bike is not as simple as it might seem, especially if you ride your bike on the roads. If you wish to protect yourself from accidents, follow these simple rules:
- Ensure your bike fits you perfectly and is as comfortable as possible. When sitting in the saddle, you must be able to put both of your feet on the floor.
- Helmets are a must-have safety accessory. If you have worn your helmet regularly for more than three years, you should considering investing in a new one.
- Ensure maximum visibility when you are cycling on the roads. Wear fluorescent clothing, especially in dim light conditions and at night.
- When riding at night, you must use a white front light, red back light and red rear reflector.
- If you regularly cycle with children, encourage them to join a Bikeability scheme, which will provide them with the skills and confidence they need to ride their bikes on the roads.
