Summer Dangers pg1

- COSMO

Sure, anyone who goes out jogging, biking, or hiking can encounter danger – like injuries or getting lost. But women face all those plus an additional risk: human predators who see them either as easier targets than men are or as sexual prey. You don’t have to go far off the beaten path to encounter a predator – urban and suburban running and biking trails can be magnets for attackers as well.

Danger Setting: Hiking Trails While murder on hiking trails is relatively rare, robbery and assault are less so. If you go hiking alone, tell somebody where you are headed, carry your cellphone with you, don’t go early in the morning or late at night, and find a group of people to trail behind. Better still, take a friend or a dog along for company. Bottom line: Out in nature, help is much further away.
Danger Setting: Biking and Jogging Paths
Danger Setting: Anywhere After Dark
