Also keep in mind that when you clip into one pedal and step on it, the centrifugal force will often reverse the opposite (unclipped) cleat at the top of its upswing.

comment What should I consider when buying a respirator?
Just FYI, if you're in any way affiliated with EC Breathe, you must declare it in your answer. bicycles.stackexchange.com/help/behavior And this is just me, but I'm skeptical of a company that can't get a single photo of an actual person using their product.

comment Does the diameter difference between road and mountain bike handlebars make some bikes incompatible?
@JulianCleary You can also mount grip shifters on the ends of the bars. I haven't delved into the specs of your bike, but you may be able to get them cheaper than trigger shifters.

The new article still doesn't offer any advice for safe cycling other than to wear a helmet. It's more oriented toward driver awareness of cycling.

There are no tips in that link that actually involve safe cycling. It is basically just an advertisement. And the firm only represents a small area compared to our global audience. Also, please note that if you are in any affiliated with that website, you must declare your affiliation within your answer. bicycles.stackexchange.com/help/behavior
