Sorry for my brief absence. I’ve had a whirlwind going on. The storm has calmed to a nice little breeze, now. Hope all is well with you ladies and gents. I’ve been able to do physical therapy. Hips are feeling much better. So, the good news is I’ll be on my bike real soon. Hope within the next week.
Today my mind’s ramblings have been about getting back on the road, the wind in my locks…. But something that happened in my area gave me pause. There was a report on the news a couple days ago that had me thinking of SAFETY!!! A gentleman was riding his bike and was struck by a vehicle and the vehicle fled the scene. I individual left behind an injured person on the side of the road without a thought. This has been on my mind. What are my safety precautions? Is my safety plan enough? I map my rides, inform others of my whereabouts, wear bright clothes and reflective gear,safety gear (helmet, gloves, eye protection, cell phone,etc.) try not to ride at night, I swear by my Road ID Bracelet http://www.roadid.com/ (there are other options too). Which brings me to this. What do you guys do to insure your safety? What are your safety plans? I would love to hear them.
