In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a big graphic leading off today’s We Run and Ride. It is designed to grab your attention and encourage you to consider some important safety and mental health practices while riding.
We call it the Biking Bubble Sphere because many of us come to believe we are impervious to harm while out on the bike.
Lazy mental habits can lead to accidents on the bike. No matter what type of rider you are, from casual trail pedaler to full-on road cyclist or triathlete barreling down a country road at 25 mph, you cannot afford to ride in a sphere where you forget what you are doing.
It’s dangerous. It can lead to harm from careless drivers or irritated farm dogs. If you live in a city you can ruin the reputation of cyclists for other riders if your Biking Bubble permits you to ride without manners, etiquette or obeying the laws.
Read about the Biking Bubble Sphere and pay attention while you ride. You’ll be doing yourself and the whole world a favor.
