2015 Safety Tip of the Week #19 “All the gear, All of the time...”

We have all heard this terminology develop over the past few years, but how many of us actually practice it. I’ve been guilty of participating in skills training and competition and not wearing a helmet, assuming that if I do drop a bike or go down, I’m not going to hit my head. Or being on a multi-day trip and at the end of a long riding day, decide to change into something more comfortable and not quite my riding attire to ride down the street to grab a bite to eat thinking nothing is going to happen between here and there.

Take a look at the following video and decide for yourself…

Until next week, Ride Safe!
