The thrills of riding your bicycle on some of the busiest streets and some of the most challenging bike lanes are just so great, you get to meet with some top riders and challenge other road users with your biking skills. It’s always nice to have that extra time to exercise and at the same time enjoy riding your bike, but still, there are some things you should always remember before starting an urban ride.
You won’t be riding on empty streets, depending on where you live, city streets might be really crowded. So it’s wise to know the area you will be going through and also know the laws.
Is your break-pad in good condition? You are riding on streets where might be intense traffic, people are moving and many others cross the road without even looking well. It’s very important to check your break’s condition before starting your ride in the urban area.
Thinking safety also involves checking your entire bike. When riding with others – cars, other bikes, we always have one concern, and that’s the condition of our tires. Your tires can make or mar you, so before even climbing that bike or even riding it in these busy streets, be sure that your tires are not .
Seeing More Things
Yes, if you are traveling with a bike, you can explore the whole city much faster than by foot, car, public transport, etc. you can easily ride in-between houses, make short-cuts etc. Just do not forget the rules.
More Obstacles – More Fun
The more obstacles we maneuver the more fun we derive. We never get tired of holding the break-pads, riding in-between two cars, riding in the middle of people and just honking that little noisemaker to alert people; riding in cities can be real fun.
You run into more cars, you get to compete with other cyclists; careless people tend to run into you, and kids may block your part trying to hold you. You can easily avoid traffic jams with a bike and save some extra time.
