- ALWAYS wear a helmet, no exceptions!!
- Wear cycling gloves and sunglasses.
- Don’t ride your aero bars through town except in near zero traffic conditions. Your time delay in getting onto the brakes from the aero position may be the critical difference in avoiding an accident.
- Don’t ride a bike wearing headphones/ipod. Being able to hear cars approaching from behind is vital.
- If riding at night wear plenty of reflective clothing, don’t wear dark colours. Have plenty of lighting especially red tail lights.
- When approaching cars parked on your side of the road be wary of an opening door.
- Be careful on wet or icy wintry mornings. Watch the road surface for ice signs, don’t lean too much on the corners, and don’t apply too much front brake. Also avoid the road markings when wet, they can be very slippery.
- If you are riding in an event like the 100K Flyer get used to riding on someone else’s wheel and riding in a bunch.
- If you are heading out on a long ride make sure you take enough water, food, clothing, cash and your cell phone. Take at least one spare tyre/tube.
