Tips for Being Seen While Riding a Cargo Bike and Adult Trike

When it comes to riding adult trikes or bikes, and even cargo bikes, safety is the main priority. Make sure you wear a helmet and know the rules of the road before heading out. It’s essential to ensure that you’re seen by others while on your bike.cargo bikes

Riding an adult tricycle is excellent for those who need a little extra help with stability. You’re less likely to fall over. However, the spare wheel results in a more significant back than a two-wheeled bicycle. Due to the larger space, take extra care to make sure drivers, pedestrians, and other riders see you.

Wear Fluorescents During the Day

Studies suggest that drivers recognize fluorescent colors much faster than standard ones. Fluorescents work best in the daytime because they reflect off the sun, so they are not as effective at night.

Wear Reflectives at Night

While bright colors work best during the day, go with reflective material at night. Reflective material shines in artificial lights, which makes you visible in headlights. Unfortunately, reflective material can be expensive and impairs the breathability of your garment. Be selective when purchasing these items and focus on the lower body.

Use Lights Any Time of the Day

A 2012 study reported that riders with permanent running lights had a 19 percent lower crash rate than those without lights. Lights are effective whether the sun is out or not..
