Reducing The Margin Of Error In Bike Riding

The other day I went for a ride with my friend.  As we were leaving the street, my friend came out into a busy highway hugging very closely to the entrance to our subdivision.  I noticed that if another car was coming into our street and also decided to cut a close turn, there would be little margin of error for either the rider or the car driver.

When you are riding your bicycle, I recommend that you keep your turns wide so that you can take evasive action in the unfortunate instance where you are in a position of peril.  Try and make eye contact with car drivers and give them a nod and get a nod back so that you make absolutely certain that you are seen.  This will greatly decrease you chances of a catastrophe.

This year our St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyers handled bicycle wrecks involving a broken hand, a fractured leg, a vebral fracture and a closed head injury.  All separate occurrences!

A lot of people driving cars are not paying attention.  Always leave yourself an out in case you encounter one of these inattentive drivers.  Don't turn a recreational ride into a disaster.

Thanks for the post. It's a very important subject and there are some great points in here. With experience comes knowledge and knowing the reasons for turning wide and making sure you're absolutely seen are really important so thanks for mentioning them.
