You don’t have to wear special clothing to enjoy the sport of biking. But the right clothing can increase your comfort and fun not to mention your cool factor. It can also improve your performance if you really get into spending time with road or off -road biking. It is better to wear brightcolored clothes which help people to see you — even in the daytime. Avoid wearing dark colors like black or brown bike riding, especially if it is getting dark outside. Besides, you should wear lightweight clothes to avoid becoming overheated.
It is necessary to wear shoes that grip the pedals. Cleats, shoes with heels, or fl ip-flops can easily slip off the pedals. And it goes without saying, don’t ride barefoot — ouch! Really serious cyclists can buy biking shoes that are specifically made to hook into certain pedals. But if you’re not into all the gear, good sneakers work just fine. Tuck away laces that could catch while you are riding.
If you value your life you cannot ride a bike without a helmet. That’s why in many countries, wearing a helmet is the law. Many bike accidents involve an injury to the head, and a crash could mean permanent brain damage or death for a person who doesn’t wear one while riding. Today’s helmets are very lightweight and comfortable. Look for a helmet that is well ventilated and fits snugly on your head without moving around. Even the best, most expensive helmet won’t protect you if it doesn’t fit.
Riding on the road? Never change direction or change lanes without first looking behind you and using the correct hand signals. That way everyone knows where you’re going. Use your left arm for all hand signals. To indicate you’re making a left turn, hold your arm straight out to the left; to indicate a right turn, bend your elbow, holding your arm up in an “L” shape; and before you stop, bend your elbow, pointing your arm downward in an upside down “L” shape.
If you can, keep your bike indoors, especially on rainy days. This will help to keep your chain rust free. You’ll also want to check your tire air pressure (the correct pressure is on the sidewall of the tire), the brakes, and the chain (for grease and tightness) on a regular basis. Biking is a fun way to get exercise and a great way to get around. Observing these simple precautions will keep your ride smooth and your trails happy.
Take this dream for a spin: The sun is shining, there’s not a cloud in the sky, and your crush just called to ask if you want to go on a bike ride. You dust off your brother’s old bike and picture yourself on a hillside adrenaline rush. OK, hit “pause” for a second and get practical. Want to enjoy the ride without making your crush call 911 because of some heavy bloodshed? So follow safety tips to really enjoy your ride.
