As an avid cyclist, you have probably had a few close calls with motorists. You might be worried that the law of averages will catch up with you at some point, but you can take action to avoid trouble on the road.
When crashes happen, they can take the lives of people of all ages. Young children, the elderly, teens and adults all face a potentially fatal injury. That's why it's so important for people to pay attention when they're on the roads. Not doing so can result in fatalities.
There are many kinds of injuries that may not seem serious on the surface but end up causing you major concern. For example, a sprain might not seem serious at first, but if you keep using it without resting, it could become a problem that requires surgery.
If you want to be safe when you're riding your bike, one of the best things you can do is to add lighting. Making yourself visible reduces your risk of getting injured in a crash and helps drivers avoid you on the road. Whether you plan to ride in a rural area or a busy city, having lights on your bike is just one of the ways you can be safer.
As an avid bicyclist, there is no such thing as an off-season when it comes to you and your bike, even in Colorado's harsh winters. No matter how experienced you are biking in all types of weather, it never hurts to brush up on each season's hazards.
When you go to a stadium or sports arena, you may want to look for an escape route in case anything happens. Sometimes, stadiums are so full that people actually fill up these escape areas, sitting on ladders and railings to see the game.
