Electric bicycles are our most commonly used means of transportation. Not only are they convenient to drive and have a long mileage, but they are also equipped with lights to allow us to exercise as much as we can in the dim night. So what are the precautions for riding an electric bike at night?

   1. The importance of listening has increased

   The vision becomes worse at night, and the hearing of the ear becomes more important at this time. It is not recommended to wear headphones to listen to music. Wearing headphones will block the sound of other vehicles. For example, there are a lot of big trucks on some roads. When you wear headphones and find that the big truck is approaching, you may already have a few meters left. It is easy to cause accidents due to tension.

  2. Side reflective measures

  Many electric car accidents are not front or rear collisions, but side collisions, because no one on the side will install lights. So add side reflections, such as reflective strips on tires or rims, BIKEID anti-theft stickers, one of which is reflective stickers.

Reflective stickers are not very precise. It is important to choose the right place to paste. It is recommended to paste it on the left side of the faucet (the junction of the upper and lower pipes). It is easy to paste and will not be blocked by the feet. The left side is because we ride on the right side. The light comes mainly from the left, and the right will be blocked by the building.

   3. Relaxed mentality but not anxious, casual

   People who like to ride at night, many of them want to relax. They can’t get up to ride in the morning, and may drive home for dinner after get off work in the evening (or don’t eat dinner first), and then go out for cycling. The mentality at this time is: Hurry up to exercise, so irritable, and a casual attitude appears.

Holiday team travel is very easy, but the whole body equipment is also very complete (you can prepare it the day before); night riding may be worn casually, and safety parts (helmets) are not even worn, but in fact, night riding is more important Safety.

   There are many people who choose bicycle lanes for night riding, but from home to bicycle lane, they will also pass through open roads. It is very dangerous if you don't wear a helmet. Therefore, the correct mentality is to exercise, have all the necessary equipment, and choose from safety.

   4. Ride carefully on unfamiliar/remote roads

It’s difficult to grasp the road conditions that you don’t often ride. It’s quite dangerous to ride on the old impression. In addition to public security issues, even if you carry self-defense equipment, you may be useless in emergencies. The best equipment is (whistle), because the whistle The audio frequency is very high and spreads far away. The criminals will be frightened when they hear the whistle sound, and it is best not to be near the collar of the car. Groups can also prevent criminals from committing crimes.

   5. To cope with road conditions, slow down

   The manhole cover on the road is the most dangerous. The road surface is poor and you can see it clearly during the day, and it is not clear even if there are lights at night. Some riders have the same speed during the day and night, but their response time to the road surface is definitely greater at night than during the day, especially when a road car hits a small pothole, it is easy to bounce off.

  Many people have to wait until there is an accident (self or someone else) before they know that they need to reduce their speed. After a long time, they forget about it. Please remember: keep the speed down at all times, and maintain 70-80% of the daytime speed through the stopwatch.

   6. Don't do training for night riding

   Training is always looking for sloped mountain roads. The climbing speed is slow, and the rushing down the mountain is fast. Naturally, it is dangerous. There is no need to fight for speed with other passers-by. It is strongly recommended to ride happily, not hard: go on flat roads instead of mountain roads.
