Bicycle Safety

Bicycle Safety–FYI Like any sport, bicycling involves the risk of injury. By choosing to ride a bicycle, you assume the responsibility for that risk, so you need to know and to practice the rules of safe and responsible riding and of proper use and maintenance. When you buckle on your helmet and go for your first familiarization ride on your new bicycle, be sure to pick a controlled environment, away from cars, other cyclists, obstacles, or other hazards.

Things To Know About Bike Helmets

Helmets are designed to absorb the shock of a sudden impact—not necessarily break a fall.

The rain has subsided here in the Mile High City

The rain has subsided here in the Mile High City, and although a small portion of the Platt River trail is technically closed, we have managed to forge through with our bike tours and navigate our way through the waters.   I’ve made a game to it to see how our skilled our riders are. If you get a foot wet, you lose! Yesterday was a scorcher, but we can’t complain after record rainfall during the month of May. A fine family of four from Springfield, MO joined us along with two beautiful gals from San Francisco.   All I can say is we drank A LOT of water on yesterday’s tour. The best part of the tour was taking a break in Civic Center Park and enjoying offerings from the two dozen food trucks that were parked at lunchtime. As a…
