If you are an active person then playing any kind of sport can help you stay fit and healthy and also you can have lots of fun playing them as well. One of the best ways to keep you healthy is cycling. It can also help with weight loss and general well being.
If you are able to use it as a form of transport as well, it will also save you money and be good for the environment.
It is now the third most popular pastime in the UK. But the main downside with cycling is the severity of injuries if you are involved in an accident, cyclists are very vulnerable on the roads because of the lack of protection afforded to their bodies.
How to avoid using a solicitor in Bedale to make a personal injury compensation claim
There are lots of precautions cyclists can take to at least reduce the severity of injuries should they be involved in an accident, for example:
- Wear a well fitting good quality helmet.
- Wear knee and elbow pads to protect the joints.
- Wear something bright to make yourself as visible as possible.
- Good sturdy footwear is important to protect the feet.
- Do not ride along side other cyclists.
- When passing parked cars, leave a doors width.
- Don’t wear headphones to play music, you wont hear approaching traffic.
- Make sure you have a good knowledge of the Highway Code.
- Make sure your cycle is in good working order.
If you are involved in an accident that was not your fault, hopefully the injuries will be less severe, but you might still need to use a solicitor in Bedale to make a personal injury compensation claim.
