Bicycles have been around for decades, but they’ve also been the subject of much controversy.
Many cyclists who don’t own their own bikes are afraid of getting stuck on the pavement, and many bicycle owners fear that they’re not up to the task of using their bikes.
Bicycling is becoming a more popular activity for the elderly and disabled, as well as people who are more at risk for injuries.
So, what’s a bicyclist to do when he or she gets stuck on a bike and isn’t sure how to get back on?
Bicycle helmets can help.
Bike helmet manufacturers offer different types of helmets, and each comes with its own benefits.
Some helmets can stop your head from hitting the ground, while others can help protect your eyes from injury.
Here’s how to make sure your helmet is working.
Clean the helmet with a dry cloth.
Most helmets come with a cloth to clean off the inside and outside of the helmet.
To clean the helmet, wipe the cloth off with a clean damp cloth, and then wipe it off with clean water.
Place the helmet on your head.
Most bicycle helmets come in two sizes: a standard and a lightweight.
If you don’t have a bicycle, you can use a bicycle helmet that fits you.
You can find bicycle helmets that are compatible with your size at bike shops.
Position the helmet correctly.
Most bicyclists place the helmet where they want it on their head.
For example, if you’re standing, you may put your helmet in a different position than you would with a regular helmet.
If your helmet doesn’t fit, you’ll need to adjust the angle to get it to fit correctly.
Put the helmet under your helmet.
Bikes have an “X” shaped frame that allows for a wide angle of travel when you put the helmet over your head, so it’s easier to get a good fit.
If the helmet isn’t centered properly, it may slip down your neck.
Position your helmet at the front.
Positioning your helmet on the front of your head allows for you to use the full width of your face to block the front view of the bike.
When you’re in a bike lane, this can be especially helpful if you see other people using your bike.
Place your helmet over the helmet tube.
Bags with a handle can be used to hold your helmet tube in place.
This can help ensure that the helmet will slide on the bike, as it’s the seatbelt’s main protection.
Position and adjust the helmet in your hand.
Position it on your forehead, using the palm of your hand to make it secure.
This keeps the helmet secure against your head and keeps your head on the frame.
Position a handrail over the seat.
A handrail is an extra barrier between your headgear and your helmet when it comes to using your bicycle.
To position the handrail properly, first place the handlebar over the top of the seat and then, using your left hand, slide the handlebars over the handlerail.
This will secure your helmet to the handle bar.
Position all the bike’s pedals.
You might have a small set of pedals that you use when riding the bike in your garage or in the driveway.
Place them on top of your helmet, and secure them with the handle of your bike using the brake.
Keep your head upright.
When riding, your head can fall on the seat or the handle bars, which can be dangerous for bicyclists who are not accustomed to riding on their own.
Keep the head on your shoulders and keep your eyes on the road.
Put your bike in gear.
Most riders don’t need to switch gears or switch between gears, but you can.
To put your bike into gear, position it in the middle of the road, then put your front wheel into the gear box and tighten the chain.
When the gears are all the same, turn the gear lever.
Check your bicycle helmet.
Most bike helmets come pre-installed with a safety pin, which holds the helmet securely in place while you ride.
If it doesn’t work, use a small screwdriver to adjust and tighten it. 13.
Check the bike for damage.
When your bicycle is on the street, check for damage to the bike and to the helmet to make certain it’s not going to get damaged by another person’s bike.
This damage will cause your bike to fall off, and you may need to replace your helmet if it gets damaged.
Apply a new helmet.
Your bicycle helmet should be worn with care.
You should keep your bicycle in good condition, especially if you ride on a busy road.
If a hole in your helmet gets caught on something, it can be a potential safety hazard.
Wear your helmet well.
Most people wear their helmets about one inch (25 mm) above
