Pre Flight (Ride) check, the “M” check.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin.
Along with visibility we have to make sure our bikes are safe before we set out on a ride. Be it a leisurely evening cruise, a weekend training run, or a century ride; you must know the condition of your bike before you set out. This holds true for all bikes, mountain, road, or recumbent. Thankfully many major events have tents set up by bike shops that offer to look over your bike for free or a nominal cost. You can’t prevent the hazards of the course, but you can avoid some mechanical, and wear issues that could otherwise ruin your day. The “M” check is the standard pre check in the cycling world. Below I have pasted some great links to existing blogs and sites that explain the M check in detail. Check them out.
Intro To Helmet Hoodie
Welcome to “Inside The Hood”. Blog entry number one.
Ever ride down the road on your bike in the evening and feel that drivers just don’t see you? Do you wave to make sure they are aware you are there, so you can turn with them or in front of them? The Helios lights and the neon colors of the Super V2 are hard to miss. When mountain biking or trail riding can you be seen if you fall? Our bright colors will help.
We created this product to increase your safety, and add to your fun while participating in you favorite sports that require helmets for safety. Our Hoodie increases your visibility, so that others around you are aware you are there.
Do you want to show off your team spirit or represent a cause on a fundraiser ride? We can custom print logos from your graphics on almost all of our materials, solid or mesh.
We are working on our covers for other sports helmets, and a new option is in the works for runners and walkers as well. Come back often as we are just starting. Updates on our events will be listed in “Outside The Hood”. Please stop by and see us at the events, grab some Hoodie swag and check out our products.
