Are you taking up cycling? Use these safety tips

It’s been a long winter for people across Denver, but the weather is now showing signs of improvement. This may have inspired you to enjoy the outdoors more, and cycling is certainly one way to do this. You may even be thinking about making a bike your main mode of transport. 

Cycling is both a popular pastime and transportation method, but you are exposed should an accident occur. Outlined below are a few safety tips that you should find helpful. 

Take care around larger vehicles 

As a cyclist, being visible is your top priority. You can enhance this by wearing bright clothing and having lights and reflectors fitted on your bike. Around larger vehicles, this hazard becomes even more dangerous. It’s possible that you will be completely out of their view and the driver may not see you in their mirrors. That’s why it’s so important to keep a safe distance and always assume that they have not seen you. 

Utilize a safety helmet 

You are not required by law to wear a helmet on your bicycle in Denver. Nonetheless, it is probably a good idea. A helmet cannot guarantee that you will not be injured, but it significantly decreases your chances of suffering a catastrophic head injury should an accident occur. Pick a helmet that fits well and offers you the most protection. 

Sadly, no matter how careful you are, a negligent driver could still run into you. If this happens, then you are likely to come off worse in terms of injuries. In such a scenario, it may be possible for you to claim personal injury compensation. Seek legal guidance to from a Denver bike accident attorney and start your path towards financial recovery from your injury.
