Safety Dress Code for You and Your Bike
Essential kit to help you stay safe:
Invest in the best cycling helmet that you can afford and get it correctly fitted. Buy your helmet from a reputable retailer and dispose of a helmet if it has been involved in an accident – even if it appears to be fine. Once a cycling helmet has sustained a shock or knock it is defunct.
Hi Vis Clothing
Stand out and be seen. Wear as much Hi Vis safety clothing as possible. Jackets or a tabard will make you highly visible to other road users.
Not just to keep your fingers warm – although they will. Cycling gloves will increase your grip of the handle bars but most importantly, should you be unfortunate enough to come off your bike, cycling gloves will protect you hands from getting cut. Roads are littered with grit and often broken glass so gloves will help prevent grazes.
It is a legal requirement to have lights on your bike, and rightly so. If other road users can’t see you then you stand an even higher chance of being involved in a collision. What would you do if your batteries ran out? Be smart and carry a spare set of batteries. You carry a spare inner tube incase of a puncture, well if your lights are broken they need fixing too don’t they?
Panniers may be weighty and a bit bulky but if your rucksack is full and heavy when you are involved in a collision and thrown from your bike, landing awkwardly on a rucksack could leave you with a long term back injury so it’s worth considering panniers as a preventative measure.
