Most of us remember legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong winning the Tour De France over seven times making him one of the greatest athletes in sports history.
Cycling is both a serious sport and leisure activity that people from around the world enjoy. Hitting a trail on a sunny weekend afternoon is a great way to relieve stress and burn calories, but with any physical activity comes the risk of injury.
Injuries to the head, knees, lower back, and genitals, are common injuries that are attributed to handle bars and bike seats. According to PubMed over 500,000 emergency room visits each year pertain to bicycle related injuries.
The best way to prevent injury is using the proper equipment such as the MitiGator on bicycle seats, helmets, handlebars, knee pads, etc. The MitiGator absorbs whole body impacts by as much as 60%. This can make the difference between just taking a nasty a spill or heading to the emergency room.
In order for this equipment to work you have to actually use it!. Many cyclist neglect using helmets and other equipment because they simply don’t feel the need for it. The failure to use safety equipment such as a helmet can lead to serious injury or even death. Cycling does not have to be a hazardous activity. If you take the necessary precautions, it can be fun and enjoyable experience that can be done with family and friends.
