When it comes to safety there are no shortcuts

Lake Havasu was recently voted #1 by Men's Journal Magazine as The Best Lake Town for Water Sports in America. With that title comes a boatload of responsibility. Low profile kayaks, canoes and paddle boards are hard to see on the water and the big powerboats are at risk of hitting them without realizing it.

 

The same goes for biking. Lake Havasu has also had it's share of bicycle fatalities over the past couple years. Four to be exact. That's four too many. The Bike and Paddle Club will be hosting several Bike&Paddle Scramble events beginning in 2020. The underlying theme is to help bring awareness to the need for safe cycling AND boating.  The New Years eve Bike Parade of Lights will help kickoff  the events for 2020 and invite everyone to join us and ride into the New Year safely.

 

One thing the Club encourages is the use of front and rear flashing red lights. Anytime you get on your bike the first thing you should do (after putting on your helmet)  is turn on your lights - DAY and NIGHT!

 

Many motorists have commented on the flashing lights on bikes and say, "it's the first thing they notice -- then the bike. "  Some have mentioned if it wasn't for the lights they might not have seen the bike at all.  The bike just didn't register.  The lights made all he difference.

A simple bell alerts hikers/walkers and other bikers you're in the neighborhood. Most will thank you for the heads up.
