  1. Hi Dale,
    I had several crashes and asked Becky for help. She suggested (as detailed above) the Fox Enduro knee pads. They are easy on/off, do the job with adequate ventilation, and offer enough protection for the kind of riding you do. Most importantly for me, they prevent kneecap road rash which can take forever to heal.
    Best wishes,

  2. I enjoyed reading your informative guide to bicycle safety equipment.

    The joy of riding started in at 40 and at 71 years old still enjoy the sport for exercise. A close friend who is an avid rider always told me that I am not a cyclist, I am just a guy who enjoys riding bicycles. I am good with that. I ride mainly bike paths but cannot help but ride on some roadways and try to get in about 20 miles every day. Another friend who was also an avid rider had an accident recently, the accident has benched him from ever riding again. As he was also 71 it started me thinking about getting some safety gear in addition to my helmet. At 6 feet 3 inches and 240 lbs, I am having difficulty finding knee pads, elbow pads and wrist protectors large enough. Any suggestions?

    My question to you is am I thinking correctly that this would be a good idea, what protection would you recommend? As long as I can, I want to ride. I think some additional safety equipment is just some insurance to assure that outcome.

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Dale, thanks for reading and it sounds like you’re really enjoying your rides! For protection, a good helmet is the most important piece of protective gear. Other gear, like knee pads and elbow pads, will help keep you from getting scratched up in case of an accident, but won’t do much in the event of a big crash or collision.

      If you do want to get some extra gear G-Form has sizes up to 2XL and their pads are still pretty easy to pedal in. I hope that helps – stay safe and keep enjoying your rides!
