No matter where you ride, bicycle safety and preparedness is critical. Considering tech and gear and other resources like hand signal and audibles, it is our goal to provide what we feel to be the most important considerations for safety before embarking on a ride.
In this video, we discuss all critical considerations related to safety. From lights and other tech & gear, to hand signals and route planning, we shed light on the important pieces of riding that create more visibility & safety.
Planning before your bicycle ride is such an important part of the sport. The best route for a car is most times unlikely to be the best route for a bike. On the other hand, when mountain biking, we must consider whether or not the trail system we're visiting has multi-directional trails or one-direction trails to avoid any heightened risk of injury or trouble. Our guide to planning your bicycle route takes into account many considerations we recommend thinking about in preparation for a great ride.
Planning your bicycle route can feel a bit daunting because it is not normally the route we are most familiar with. Many times, commuters will be aware of go-arounds and lower-traffic roads to avoid high-traffic, multi-lane situations with cars. Also, when mountain biking, you must consider where you are riding. Are the trails directional? Are there levels of beginner, intermediate, and expert noted? Give this a watch as we dive in deeper.
Contrary to belief, riding a bike can be comfortable and does not have to involve constant thought of what is paining us throughout our rides. We shed light on our three key areas to focus on and small adjustments & tips that can make a big difference.
