●How to avoid heat stroke

While cycling,some risks should be recognized.
Don’t push yourself too hard! Take a rest and enjoy! When you sweat, salt as well as your body water will be lost.
Drink sports drinks to supplement sodium.
Bring some food containing sodium such as salt candy, just in case.


●How to find your way back when you’re lost

When you are lost, try to find a car and ask the driver for a help.
But when you are in a remote area and cannot find any car, use your cell phone and contact the police.
If you don’t have any phone available, you should go back the road you took.
If you are completely lost, don’t panic! Be patient and try to find a building, a car, or a person and ask for help.
Never wander into narrower roads or make turns.
