Accidents happen all the time. I mean, we never ask for them, but they have a funny way of jumping up on us and catching us totally off-guard.
But…lagging road bike first aid kits around in your backpack is downright annoying. They are big, bulky and heavy, and we don’t need them 90% of the time in most biking situations.
Additional weight also presents another concern. Pocket space is limited but outdoor emergency could happen in real time situation.
So, what do you do?
Leave them behind, and good old Murphy comes along, his good old law in tow, striking you down when you’re unprepared and all equipped.
1.Bicycle first aid kit innovation
It’s just not worth the risk. But…if you’re like me, you don’t want to lug a traditional cycling first aid kit around in your backpack, it’s heavy and takes up too much space causing back pain (and of course, great annoyance!)
Nope. The world is slowly moving towards a new kind first aid kit if you can realize some nice and new design from the market.
SJ WORKS bicycle first aid kit was inspirited from our daily life and created for better life.
One that’s designed specifically for bikes and cyclists, attaching to your bike quickly and easily.
In other words, you won’t even know it’s there. Unless you need it. Then you’ll definitely know it’s there, and it will keep you stable until paramedics can arrive on the scene.
2.Feature of new bike kit
Light weight ,cute little kit attached to the bike save up your space from backpack. And your first aid bag no more jammed into the backpack anymore.
Heavy backpacks can actually be the cause of many accidents if you need to train your cycling skill sometimes.
I like to lighten my load with my own Bicycle First Aid Kit that’s equipped with everything I could possible need in any emergency. I’m talking ALL the accessories, in one little pouch.
You could even make your own, and save a ton of stress. Especially for a family biking trip, why not prepared one bicycle first aid kit for children, just in case that put yourself into a poor situation that you do not have anything on hand.
But…what should your first aid kit contain no matter you will buy from market or DIY your ideal one?
3. Questions that you need to know for your ideal bicycle first aid kit
The first question you need to ask yourself is: “where am I going?”
Every destination comes with its own threats. Will you be cycling through rough terrain where grazes are a possibility?
Will you be cycling through rough terrain where grazes are a possibility?
Will the weather be bad?
Will there be wild animals?
Always do your homework on your location to find out what possible dangers may lay ahead. That’s “homework”.
From there, you can pack a kit accordingly; saving time, money and pocket space. Naturally, there are certain items that should also be packed in no matter what.
It’s important to put together a well-thought-out mixture of pressure bandages; non-adhering wound dressing, antiseptic towlettes and anything else to treat undesired road rashes. Prepare at least one piece of triangular bandage for dislocation First aid or large scrapes First Aid which could happen often in cycling sport.
And another question is how many people will go , so we can prepare appropriate quantity of items.
