Crashes Happen, But Be Prepared Not Scared - Women getting into cycling often ask us about crashing, what the chances are and what to expect. We wish we could say that it's a non-issue, but most riders, whether they ride the road or trails, or both, eventually crash. It's just the nature of two-wheeled vehicles that must be balanced to remain upright. Fortunately, these crashes are usually minor, and as long as you're wearing your helmet and gloves, and riding within your abilities, you should only suffer a few scrapes that'll heal quickly.
