After a bicycle crash, do this

Riding a bike through Chicago can be thrilling and terrifying all at the same time. Dodging cars and pedestrians might be second nature to you already. Unfortunately, it does not take much to find yourself on the ground with a broken bone or two, some nasty road rash, and a bent bike frame. In reality, drivers tend to view cyclists as second class, with fewer rights to share the road. Even though the law says otherwise, many cyclists find themselves taking the blame after a collision with a vehicle.

Safety tips for urban cyclists

Riding through Chicago, whether you are a commuter or just an avid cyclist, can be extremely dangerous. You probably find yourself dodging cars, pedestrians, and various other hazards on a regular basis. In reality, the dangers that come with cycling in the city are endless and avoiding every single one is near impossible. It you have not already sailed over your handle bars, you have more than likely come close.

Prevent injury during an over-the-handlebars bike crash

One of the most common kinds of bike crashes involves getting the front tire caught on something, which sends the bicyclist over the handlebars. These over-the-handlebars bike accidents can also happen if a cyclist applies too much brake to the front tire.
