Neck and back
During cycling, you often maintain a single posture for a long time. For the back and neck, this is burdensome. To prevent this load resulting in overuse, it is important that the bicycle be correctly adjusted. To prevent back problems, the position of the saddle is of major importance. In the event of threatened neck problems, raising the height of the handlebars can offer a solution.
Because of the long periods of supporting your weight on your hands, the pressure on the nerves of the hand can lead to a tingling feeling. Possible solutions are wearing cycling gloves, applying different strapping to the handlebars and regularly changing grip.
Wearing a helmet can prevent serious head injury. In addition, you can take a number of measures to reduce the risk of falling. Make sure your equipment is well maintained. Correctly functioning brakes, clean click plates (to enable you to easily release the foot) and a bell when cycling in busy traffic conditions.
