Bike Tour To Panama City: Tips To Manage Risk And Danger

October 17, 2013 | By | Reply More

EL CAÑO, PANAMA

In this video, I share a few tips that I’m doing to manage risk and danger on this bike tour as well as travel in general. It covers body protection, dealing with stray dogs, getting robbed, travel insurance, recovering stolen passport, and more.

I also wanted to add that I bring a first aid kit as well. In my backpack, I have the Adventure Medical Kit 3 Ultralight/Watertight. Every traveler should have one, even if you make a homemade kit from supplies you already have at home.

This is an overview to give you things to think about. I’m not trying to scare you, but it’s better to be prepared. While traveling can be fun, staying safe is a priority.

What are some of your tips to manage risk and danger traveling? Share in the comments below.

The terrain is consistently flat and paved well along this route. It took me about 4.5 hours with a lunch break to cycle 50 km.
