Travel tips for cyclists on the go

Kyle J. Cassas, MD, Hincapie Racing’s team physician and Primary Care Sports Medicine Specialist offers advice in a recent blog for cyclists who plan to travel.

Be proactive. Be prepared. Be protected.

Dr. Cassas strongly recommends downloading CDC Travelers Health website or the TravWell App for helpful health information.

In this app, you can select the country to which you’re traveling, and it will suggest packing lists, vaccines, medication, travel and medical kits, and steps to take before and during the trip. In addition, the app provides a place to store important travel documents.

Last, once you have yourself covered, don’t forget about protecting your bike! If you’re driving to your destination, a quality bike rack is essential, and if you’re flying, a travel case makes your life a lot easier. Read the entire blog at Hincapie.com.
