Ten taboos to avoid when riding

In the process of cycling, there are some things that need attention.

The following ten taboos should be avoided.


When braking improperly, please brake the rear wheels first to avoid falling off the vehicle due to excessive braking force.

The position of the rear brake handle can be changed according to personal habits.

Before going on the road, you should ask a professional technician to adjust the tightness of the brake line and check the clearance and wear degree between the brake block and the wheel.


The car body will tilt when turning in an improper way.

At this time, the inner pedal should be kept horizontal or above to avoid touching the ground.

You should slow down before entering the curve.

It is very dangerous to brake during the turning process.


Wrong way of uphill and downhill Some people will stand up and step on the pedal when riding uphill.

However, unless it is a particularly steep slope or requires accelerated sprint, this position should be avoided.

In addition to consuming more energy, the increased riding center of gravity causes poor handling, and the rear wheels are also easy to slip.

The correct way should be: when climbing, move forward in the sitting position, lower the upper body to keep the center of gravity, and step forward with a light tooth ratio.

When going downhill, the center of gravity of the body moves backward, the body is lowered, and the thighs clamp the cushion.

Pay attention to control the speed, adopt gradual braking mode, and prohibit emergency braking.


If you do not maintain a safe distance and follow the team for group riding, you should always maintain a safe distance between vehicles.

During long-distance riding, the front car will be windproof to facilitate riding; When passing through a wide and straight road section, it is easy to make the riders lose their spirits.

It is recommended that the distance between riders should be at least one bicycle to ensure safety.


The condition of the road surface on the road with rolling pavement protrusions is known to all.

When riding, you need to keep your eyes away from the road, avoid driving too fast, observe whether there are obstacles or potholes on the road.

If you can’t dodge, it is recommended to pull up the handle and use the pedal force to let the front wheel jump over.

Reduce the impact.


It is difficult to know the external information when riding with headphones, such as the horn sound of the rear vehicle or the reminder of the teammate, and it is also easy to cause accidents if the headset cable is too long.

If you want to listen to music or radio, you can use devices such as loudspeakers.

Do not wear headphones when riding.


If you are physically ill or mentally ill and cannot concentrate, you should plan to move forward or delay the journey in an alternative way to avoid danger.


It is forbidden to force the vehicle fault.

If the vehicle fault cannot be repaired immediately, it should be advanced by other alternative ways or request road assistance.

Especially if the brake or wheel set (tire) and other components are in abnormal condition, do not force to ride.


Stop riding in bad weather If you encounter severe weather factors such as typhoon, heavy rain, lightning strike, strong wind, etc., you should change your trip or cancel it.

If you encounter severe weather conditions during the ride, you should wait for the wind and rain to slow down before moving forward.

You should avoid riding at noon or in high temperatures above 35 degrees Celsius.

In addition, timely supplement water.


Do a good job of travel planning to avoid night riding.

Due to the insufficient light source of the vehicle lights, it can only be used as an aid to remind other passers-by.

It is suggested that the travel plan should start early, reduce the noon rest time, and arrive at the end of today’s journey before the sun sets..
