Arrive early so you can warm up and ease into your activity.

Apply sunscreen even if it is not sunny.

Dress for the activity and be ready for weather that may change.

Bring/wear proper safety equipment such as a helmet when cycling.

Although wearing flip flops is tempting, supportive footwear is the safest choice.

Bring water and a healthy snack depending on timing.

Keep insect repellent handy – there are some decent all natural choices.

Don’t let yourself overheat – drink water and take breaks in the shade when possible
