We've made our own bike first aid kit

It's not only important that you're equipped with the right tools and spares when riding off road to handle a mechanical breakdown, but what happens when your rides stopped short with a crash or injury? Touch wood this won't happen too often or at all, but it's important to have a think about how prepared you are for this.

Pushbikes First Aid Kit First Aid

Pictured right above was an incident where one of our staff members broke his ankle on a ride recently.

With many races having first aid kits as a standard gear requirement and trails taking us further and longer it's important that at least 1 person from your riding group is carrying a first aid kit. With this in mind, we've decided to make a bike specific kit containing all the important items tucked into a neat bag to carry whilst riding.

The kit contains,

  • Triangular bandage
  • Adhesive dressing
  • Crepe bandage
  • Wound dressings
  • Plasters and splint probe
  • Fabric dressings
  • Cleansing wipes
  • Saline solution
  • Foil blanket
  • CPR shield
  • Gloves
  • Cotton buds
  • Emergency info

We'd always recommend a cell phone to be carried as well, this can be used to phone for help.

We've got these in stock at both the Papanui Road and Rangiora stores.
