Cycling Tip #5 - Break Properly To Avoid Accidents

Learning how to brake properly can help you avoid accidents. To exert optimal pressure, brake with your hands at the ends of the levers.

For a quick stop, as you press the brakes firmly, slide your buttocks to the very back of the saddle. This will keep the rear of the bike down so that you don't flip over the handlebars.

For additional braking techniques, talk to the experts at Watsonville Cyclery!
