Basic Safety

Here are four basic bicycling tips

Maintain control

The following are things you can do to maintain control of your bicycle, even in an emergency:

  • Ensure your bicycle is the right size and properly adjusted to fit you.
  • A properly-fitted bicycle is more comfortable and easier to control.
  • A bicycle shop can help you choose the correct size bicycle.
  • Ensure your bicycle is in good working order by inspecting it regularly.

Protect Yourself

Properly-fitted helmets provide protection from a potentially life-threatening head injury. By law, bicycle riders under 18 years old must wear a bicycle helmet while riding on a public road.

Wear your helmet per manufacturer directions.

Be Visible and Alert

Even if you obey all traffic laws, there is always a risk of a collision.

  • Be prepared to stop for vehicles waiting at stop signs, in driveways, or parking spaces.
  • Be prepared to take evasive action relating to vehicles that have just passed you and may turn right.
  • Use hand signals before making turns or changing lanes to warn traffic around you.

Ride in a Safe Lane Position

Ride in the same direction as traffic so you are more visible to drivers entering roads or changing lanes in the following scenarios:

  • Passing a vehicle or another bicycle.
  • Preparing to make a left turn at an intersection.
  • When a lane is too narrow for a bicycle
  • When approaching a right turn.
  • If the road is one-way with two or more lanes.

What happens if i get a flat tire?

You probably won't, because all our E-mtb and mtb are tubeless with a sealant inside, while the road bikes are equipped with a tube, pump and tyres levers, but if you rent a city bike please call at our number or send us a message with your location, soon an assistant will be to you to help you.

What do i do with a bike overnight?

Bikes like to sleep indoors, just like people. If you're staying in a hotel, check with the bellhop, concierge, or reception to find out if you can take your bike to your room or if they want to keep it in their luggage room. Keeping the bike indoors overnight is the best way to avoid potential damage or theft. In case this is not allowed, please contact us soon.
