Holiday Bike Safety Tips

One of the best things about a summer holiday is that you get to spend some time outdoors. Naturally, there are many activities you can enjoy outdoors on a holiday, but bicycling is one of the best. Unfortunately, with all the additional traffic on the road because of the holiday, there are some things you will want to do to stay even safer.

Watch for Distracted Drivers

The first thing you will want to do is pay attention to distracted drivers and pedestrians. Since these people will likely be following road signs and looking for certain attractions, they will be less likely to see a bicyclist on the road. For this reason, being alert at all times and watching traffic closely is the best thing to do.

Dress Appropriately

Dressing the right way is also an important thing to do when you are biking during summer holidays. This could mean wearing the right reflective gear at night or preparing for inclement weather. Following this advice can help protect your comfort and keep you safe at the same time.

Watch for Road Hazards

Finally, make sure you are keeping an extra close watch for road hazards when you are biking during a holiday. Since more traffic will be out than normal, road hazards can pose and even bigger risk to bicyclists than normal. Also, avoid riding through construction areas or in areas where the roads are severely congested with traffic.
