When you're out on the road or on your mountain bike, safety should always be your number one priority. To ensure you can get back on the bike quickly, there are certain communication tools that are essential for any cyclist. Depending on the type of roads or trails you travel, many cyclists opt for a tire sealant. If you are using clinchers, you can add a sealant to both tubes; if you go without a tube, add a little sealant to the inside of the tire.
The sealant used in tubeless tires should last for several months before drying out and needing to be added again. Before changing lanes or positions within a bike path, always check for traffic. The pace lines are only for experienced cyclists. Warn other cyclists of potentially dangerous conditions or road hazards by using hand signals to indicate the movements of the driver or group to each other and to motorists. The Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency (TPA) also encourages local businesses to opt for bicycle-friendly business designations, as well as local colleges and universities to opt for bicycle-friendly university designations. Cyclists must always travel on the bike path or to the right of the road when there is no bike path. In addition to communication tools, it's important to bring along some recovery drinks.
These act as a recovery drink, which after a long and hard trip will help the body to repair itself, along with a little rest. To ensure comfort in the saddle, it's important to wear padded shorts, choose the best bike saddle, adjust the height of the bike saddle to the right height, and pedal until you get used to the saddle. In recognition of Florida Bike Month, the TPA Governing Board adopts a Florida Bike Month proclamation every year at its March board meeting. The Weston Bicycle Plan serves to provide guidance for prioritizing and recommending future bicycle facilities and programs to continue to support cycling in Weston. To travel safely in traffic, it is necessary to know how to differentiate between the “main” (in the center of the left lane) and “secondary” (approximately one meter to the left of the moving traffic lane) positions and use them appropriately. Under Florida law, cyclists can ride in two rows unless they obstruct traffic. For cyclists in Palm Beach County, Florida, communication tools are essential for a safe ride.
Tire sealants can help prevent flats while hand signals can alert other cyclists and motorists of potential hazards. Recovery drinks can help restore energy after a long ride while padded shorts and an appropriate bike saddle can ensure comfort in the saddle. Finally, cyclists should be aware of Florida Bike Month and Weston Bicycle Plan initiatives that promote cycling safety.
