Bicycles have been around for a really long time now even before metal became the standard material for making them. Initially, bicycles were made from wood. Everything including the wheels was wooden. The picture of such a bicycle is really interesting especially when you compare to what the world knows as bicycles today. These machines have been modified over the years to become so much better. Technology has made it possible for people to enjoy really good cycling experiences doing what they love doing as they are going about their businesses in town.
Cycling has never been more enjoyable
There is cycling for the fun of it all and there is professional cycling. Riding your bicycle to work is basically a case of cycling for fun. Professional cycling is paid. As you know, cycling is a sport and it can earn you a whole lot of money if you train well. Whichever kind of cycling you engage yourself in you can make it more enjoyable by getting the accessories that you want for the activity.
Music is an integral part of many people’s training sessions (whether it is workout training or professional cycling training). Keeping your iPod in the pocket as you are cycling could potentially damage it aside from the fact that it is extremely uncomfortable for some people. The same is the case with phones. Instead of keeping the phone in your pocket you can place it somewhere you can see it. When someone calls you then all you will need to do is receive it via your headset.
The only thing that you need to do is get the right bicycle mount for your phone. There is nothing that you cannot mount onto a bicycle nowadays including cameras and GPS map systems. Garmin and GoPro are among the brands that have made it their business to ensure that cyclists are able to access tools that they can use to make their training sessions simpler and also extremely fun.
Safer than ever before
Cycling is not only more enjoyable today but it is also safer than ever before. To start with, if you need to mount a camera on your bicycle, you can do that. For some people, night is the only time that they can do their training or workout activities. Even with good streetlights, it is only safe to have light on your bicycle to go with. You can get a mount for your flashlight or whatever lighting tool you are using.
The fact that you are able to mount a camera on your bicycle makes it possible for you to stay safe. Cases have been told of cyclists being harassed by motorists on the road and others being injured severely but still the insurance companies fail to make payments to them. They rely on the fact that it is hard to prove fault in bicycle accidents to deny making payments to the injured party. With a camera in place, you can present evidence to them and get the insurance payment issue over and done with fast.
