Since the current issues including oil price increasing, energy-saving, carbon-decreasing were progressively respected by the public, the “bicycle” became a topical product as everyone wanted to own it. But some industrial businesspeople pointed out a critical issue on bicycle riding, that is, “security” (safety).

Jack Cheng-kuan Hsieh, Chairman of KHS Mountain Bike Corp., discussed some of the dangers of cycling with Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen as part of a press conference.

Safety first before sporting
All the riders wanted to circle around the Taiwan or the other places but [they] often ignored several critical issues especially pre-tour preparations. Damages or accidents often caused with lack of preparations. Therefore, choosing a proper [cycling] lane, planing well, and doing necessity preventions are considered critical and must-be-done elements when riding a bicycle. In addition, proper clothing should be adapted in different weathers, and last but not least, DO NOT RIDE WHEN IT’S BAD WEATHER!

In addiiton to Hsieh, Wikinews also interviewed Frank Feng-chou Kuo, Technical Chair of International Association of Ultra Runners. Following is an extract from his comments made to Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen:

Safety first before sporting
Whether a sport requires endurance or not, competitors should prepare fully before competing in any event. In most cases, accidents are often caused by the lack of preparation before an event.
Safety first before sporting

In general, when sporting anytime and anywhere, preparations should be done for a better performance and security issue whether it needs more or less endurance or physical strengths.
