4- Advantages and tips to not forget when you travel and use your bike
Whenever we decide to use our bicycle as a mean of transport, we can explore corners, roads or unusual spectacular places that can not be reached by car, this makes the bike a perfect vehicle to make these moments a memorable experience.
Every time you set out to do a bicycle trip, get a bigger experience by getting into more adventures. But doing it on wheels is an XXL experience, full of intensity, a sense of freedom and unforgettable moments. Feeling the wind on your face, pedaling on uneven or unexplored terrain and enjoying the landscape as if you were part of it, are immeasurable experiences.
Day-to-day stress, daily worries and tension, they all disappear immediately when you travel quietly, without haste, without stress, with the aim of recreating yourself in the beauty of nature, remembering the verses of the great poet: “Cyclist there is no road, the road is made when pedaling”.
Your physical condition will improve a lot. The cardiovascular exercise provided by riding a bicycle favors the heart, lungs and circulatory system, making the whole body find total well-being. Your physical condition, therefore, will be optimized. But be prepared well and be cautious when organizing these trips.
Search for a safe route, choosing the itineraries that best suit your physical ability and technical ability. When you ride around the mountain, be respectful with the environment that surrounds you.
When you ride on the road, do it with caution and respect traffic regulations, they will save your life.
Use the right lane whenever you can and as long as the environment allows it near the sidewalk, especially at night or in places that are driven by motor vehicles.
When you make a group route, always leave a safe distance with other vehicles and other cyclists.
In case of works on the road or animals that cross your path, raise your arm on the side where the danger comes from before performing any maneuvers, this will make others aware of the situation and avoid an accident.
Before stopping or sharply reducing speed, make sure that you can do it without risk and signal your maneuver in advance.
If you make a route at night, please carry approved reflective elements, lights, reflective garments and a vest on the bicycle.
Choose the bicycle that best suits your technical skills and body measurements.
The bicycle has to be in good condition before leaving. Check the tires, brakes, lights, and periodically do mechanical checks.
For those who perform extreme sports on wheels, hire a civil liability insurance and have the emergency services phone number.
Do not forget to bring your helmet, flashlight, basic tools and first aid kit. It is very important because it can be very useful in case of falling. In addition, the Traffic Law stablishes that drivers and passengers of bicycles must wear their helmets on urban roads, whether transited or not.
Wear comfortable clothes, without being afraid to eliminate half of what you planned to wear.
Do not forget the European health card, vaccines and passport outside of Spain.
True security, however, is based on the correct speed and respect towards all road and mountain users.
So, you know: bicycle tourism is going to be very good for you. And if you practice it with good company… even better.
