Essential riding advice for beginners

Bike riding can be extremely dangerous if you don’t be cautious and careful. Whether you are a new bike owner or a seasoned bike rider, here are some of the best safety tips to be safe on the road. 

Look Twice

A car is easier to spot. But not motorcycles. So, keep an eye and an ear out for motorbikes. They are more difficult to notice than automobiles. So, check before changing lanes, take a second look and always check your blind spot. Spending an extra second to look, might save a life. 

Educate your passengers

Having someone on the back of your bike is part of the pleasure. But keep in mind your passenger also has a role to play in keeping both of you safe.

Thus, providing them with the necessary gear. Also, educate them on how they should sit and move with you in various maneuvers. Also, make sure they know how important it is not to distract you while riding. 

Check the forecast 

Check the weather before heading out on a bike. If there is a chance of heavy rain, leave the bike at home. If you must ride in the rain, do not do it immediately after the rain begins. 

Just after it starts raining, it pulls up oil and other waste spilled on the road, making it extremely slippery. So, make sure to wait a bit, so the rain washes them away and cleans the way for you. Then, when you’re driving, be extra precocious. Ride slowly and, give plenty of room for stopping. If the weather worsens, pull over and wait it out.

Wear a helmet

Everyone knows that you need to wear a helmet when riding a bike. But most people miss wearing the right helmet. Many stores sell low-cost helmets that look nice, but do not offer the necessary protection. So always purchase a high-quality helmet that meets a good level of protection.

Additionally, ensure that your helmet fits you properly. It should be neither too tight nor too loose. It should not block your eyesight, but it should cover the majority of your head.

Leave enough space

Bikes require less room to stop and navigate than vehicles since they are smaller and lighter. Still, they need more space than you think. Make sure you provide yourself with enough room in traffic. 

Maintain a safe following distance between the vehicle in front of you. So, you have more chance to have an escape route available to the side in case you can’t stop in time.
