Additional Tips For Cycling Safely And Comfortably

Keep yourself safe while cycling by taking a few precautions. Invest in a good bike helmet that fits comfortably and snugly on your head. Wear bright or light-reflective clothing so you're visible to drivers, even during low-light conditions. Consider adding reflective tape or lights to the front and back of your bicycle for added visibility. Choose comfortable, breathable clothes appropriate for the weather, along with a pair of cycling shorts with padding for extra comfort. 

What’s more, make sure your bike is adjusted properly for you, with the saddle level and positioned so your knee bends slightly at the bottom of the pedal stroke and handlebars set up so you don't strain your neck or back. It's always important to make sure you have the right protective gear when biking. Investing in quality cycling sunglasses is a great way to protect your eyes from UV rays and glare while also ensuring your visibility is still clear. Don't forget to wear your shades when hitting the trails! With these simple steps, you can stay safe and enjoy every ride!
