The Reason Behind The Spike In Cycling Injuries And Deaths

September 04, 2015 1 min read

Cycling is a great way to get your heart pumping and your waistline trimmed down, but it is now extremely common for cyclists to be at risk of injury and even fatalities. "There are just more people riding and getting injured in the age group (of 45+). It's definitely striking." says Dr. Benjamin Breyer, who has conducted a study on biking injuries. "After Lance Armstrong had all of his success at the Tour de France, a lot more people were riding, and there were a lot more older riders that took up the bicycle for sport." biking fast Why are older riders more susceptible to injury? Mainly because generations more advanced in age tend to have more fragile bones and recovery is more difficult for them. A young, 25-year-old getting into an accident would bounce back faster than a 60-year-old, regardless of that 60-year-old's fitness level. Bike safety comes down to wearing a helmet and reflective gear, and always signaling with the proper signs. Be aware of the traffic around you and don't go at a faster pace than you can handle. Make sure your bike is safe, the tires are correctly inflated and your gears are working. These tips come in handy for a rider of any age! What are your thoughts? How do you stay safe on the roads?
