Some tips for Staying
Safe While Biking
A Helmet save your life!
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.
How to wear your Helmet
The following steps are the most important especially with the Mtb:
- Ensure your bicycle is the right size and properly adjusted to fit you.
- Find your right position with the saddle
- Check the brakes and memorize the front one in the left side
- Have the right balance and low speed during downhill trails
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.
Don’t forget to signal a lane change by holding your left arm out to the left side of your body and signal a right turn by holding your right arm out to the right side of your body.
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.
- Never ride with headphones or an earpiece. You need to hear everything you possibly can.
Know the weather forecast
Wear waterproof gear as needed. You might even carry a small backpack to hold lightweight extra layers and other essentials for every ride.
Wear sunscreen, especially on the back of your neck. Wear long sleeves with breathable fabric. Wear sunglasses.
Tips for Racing Riders
Ride with a buddy. Two cyclists will be more visible than one. Plus, if something happens to you, your buddy may be able to facilitate the emergency response process (and vice versa).
Bring drinking water for longer rides. This is especially important if you’re mountain biking and racing bikes in Summer season.
Wear bright colors and reflective clothing, especially in the early morning, late at night, or on cloudy days.

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.
