How to ride safely on a bike ?

Ecological conviction, physical health, increased health risk in public transport... There is always a good reason to start cycling or to continue cycling.

Except that cycling is not safe. Between rolling cars, badly parked cars, scooters and motorcycles, pedestrians who can't hear you coming... the risks of accidents and falls are extremely numerous.

A cyclist is 3 times more likely to be killed on the road than a motorist.

So to prevent tragedies, certain rules have been put in place. You can see them in this video. But, for everyone's safety, this video also shows that it is possible to go further than the law and to protect yourself even better.

For example, what's the difference between a fall on a scooter and a fall on a bicycle? None, you fall on the asphalt in both cases and you can hit your head on the ground or the sidewalk? Yes, but on a scooter, a helmet is mandatory. On bikes it is optional. The fall does not have the same consequences.

Riding with the mandatory safety equipment is non-negotiable and we invite you, in this video, to protect yourself more.

Cycling offers a feeling of freedom, but you must respect the rules of the road for everyone's safety and always remain vigilant.

As there is not only the bike to ride on the road, you can watch our video How to ride safely on an electric scooter?
