Yet the majority of cyclists carry very little, if any, first-aid equipment when theyre out cycling. Basic first-aid equipment can help to alleviate unnecessary pain and suffering, affect recovery times and, in certain cases, it can make the difference between life and death.
Over the years a few very basic first-aid kits have been available for cyclists, but these were usually overpriced and understocked and only carried the most basic of first-aid items.
Steven Lewsen, a former ambulance officer, cyclist and first-aid instructor with over 20 years experience has launched a quality first-aid kit specifically for cyclists, after almost a year of careful design and in consultation with a number of other cyclists and even bike shop owners.
The kit had to contain a wide range of products that could deal with everything from minor ailments up to more serious injuries and yet still be compact enough to be able to easily attach to the bike without getting in the way.
The result is a kit that is already being extremely well-received by both bike shops and cyclists themselves.
The kit is very compact, yet contains a huge amount of quality items, including:
Itch relief Sachets for bites and stings
Burnshield Hydrogel sachets for burns and sunburn (and chaffing)
Saline which can be used as eye wash or for irrigating wounds
Wound dressings for severe bleeding
Asguard Flex Roll (1m) for wounds and road rash
Crepe bandage for general purpose bandaging
Shock blanket to treat for shock after a fall
Resus mask for CPR
First-aid instruction sheet
Of course, we can never predict when a first-aid kit may be required and that is why it is so essential to plan ahead and carry a decent first-aid kit at all times when cycling. This compact, yet extremely well-stocked kit is clearly a safety product that no serious cyclist should be without.
