Fall’s a lovely season in so much of the U.S. Even when a bike is being ridden for work, autumn colors can offer smiles thanks to their beauty.
Of course “fall”--as in tumble off a bicycle--is not an inviting visual. Fortunately simple tips can help keep you safe:
Make sure the bike’s the right size--If the bike is too large you won’t be able to control it properly. Also make sure the seat is the right size so you feel comfortable.
Be honest about nighttime skills --About 20% of bicycle deaths occur between 6 and 9 p.m. so if you must ride at night take extra precautions. Have a front light and a red back beam. Wear straps that reflect light on sleeves and any caps.
Be careful about carrying things--Off to just a quick ride? A travel belt will allow you to carry a house key, one credit and ID card, maybe even lipstick and mirror. For more, put them into backpacks, or bags that can be strapped down or fit in a handlebar basket.

One of PIH’s September 2018 guests talked eye safety: Dr. Dianna Seldomridge, a clinical ophthalmologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Now that this October is Eye Injury Awareness Week. Here are some quick reminders about why winter sun protection is important for eyes and other organs, plus tips for establishing protection for yourself and loved ones.
Sunburn can happen--Both spectrums of those l ultraviolet rays we mentioned--UVA and UVB--are dangerous and you’re exposed even on cloudy, rainy and/or snowy days. It’s not only sun burns; enough exposure can lead to skin cancer.
Itchy, chaffed, skin--OK, so you don’t get burned. Rough winds and other bad weather exposure can make every part of your skin that’s exposed (even around ski goggles) dried out and scratch demanding.
Dangerous eye damage--Think one sunny day can’t hurt your eyes? Think again. That one day exposure can burn the eye part called the cornea, the inner eye’s clear cover-up. Long-term exposure can cause vision-clouding growths called cataracts.
Slips and falls--Of course ice and snow are great “downfalls” in winter. One wrong step and zoom! Down you go.
