Prepare for the Ride

Prepare for the Ride

By Eric Noel Roman

Time for a ride. That’s right, it is summer and the mercury is rising, the sun is out, and the weather is great. Time to get the cute shorts on, the tank top out, and the sunglasses cleaned up. Now you are ready to jump on that banana seat and go for a long ride.

Are you fully prepared for your expedition out in the sun? Before you go out into the sun, consider using some passive protection from those invisible dangers. Sunscreen will be the first layer of protection to keep you from burning up. There is nothing worse than going out and playing out with others only to realize that you have turned into a lobster and have to deal with the burning sensation.

Ready to ride? Wait! You forgot one vital piece of protection. You have to put it on the top of your head. Put on that helmet. Remember that the helmet is the first layer of defense against injury. Make sure it fits properly and is snug, but not too tight.

Now you are ready for that fun ride.
