The bike season has already started and it is well worth the preparation. Where to start and what do we have to remember before we go for a spring ride? The reflective jacket is a good suit for riding on road.
The first and basic activity, unfortunately we often forget. The review is best done in the fall, just after the end of the two-wheel drive season. It is best to go to a service site where the brakes and oil chain are adjusted. Such an operation should not cost more than 100 zlotys. However, if you have only woken up now, you must accept that the spring of waiting for a bicycle test may be longer.
If our skateboard is in good condition, this review can be done by us. "If he rode in the autumn and we kept him in a dry place, he would probably ride well after pumping," explains Power Torsi from Costar Duty Bike. For sure, let's check the tires, because if they are spared and cracked, it may soon be necessary to replace them.
If we slept rather than slept on the couch in the winter, and the activity was limited to the slopes of the fridge, it would also be worth taking a small warm-up before the first cycling trip. Sows, although unpopular, can effectively protect us from leaven. Equally important are the muscles of the abdomen and the back. An excellent and unbearable exercise will be the "board".
Here the rule is simple - we are obliged to buy a helmet. Today it is no longer synonymous with oracles, and more interesting models and felons. A helmet is a basic protection on the roadway. Another important element is lighting. Many of us forget about the backlight, which in particular in urban traffic is extremely important. Those who move on poorly lit roads should also invest in reflective vest.
First, let's get used to the bike, and then think about everything that can make us ride. If a bike is used to move to work, we will not need special sportswear. Of course, it is worth to ensure a minimum of comfort and wear a sports t-shirt, which after the change from the bike to something more representative.
It is only when we start to treat our bikes more professionally; it is worth thinking about comfortable trousers (those who have driven 50 kilometers without them will understand that they can give in the bone). We also need gloves, because the hands are rubbing after several tens of minutes of uninterrupted driving, and during spring rides can also protect us from the cold.
For many of us the greatest motivation for activity is the purchase of equipment. Often, instead of choosing a new bicycle, we choose to use it. In such cases, however, we should be very careful. Patel Turks senses, in order to first check the wheels, these should work equally and not bend to the right and left. Another important element is the frame, if it is dented, it is expected that the bike in this place may have a weakened construction, and replacement of the frame and repair of the wheels involves considerable costs.
It is hard to believe that a few decades ago the safety belts were considered technological novelties, and dormant pigs were used for car crash tests. Today, drivers' safety is ensured by sensors, state-of-the-art monitoring systems, and even intelligent tires.
At first, the car designers did not attach much importance to the safety of the drivers. Cars were to be faultless, other issues were considered insignificant. Particularly safe, even if the first cars were moving at 20-30 km / h. The "magic barrier" of 100 km / h was exceeded only in 1902, but still considered a crazy record, not a normal operating speed.
