Riding a bicycle is a fun and healthy way to enjoy the outdoors, but it’s important to follow these tips to stay safe…
Always wear a helmet to prevent head injuries.
Adjust the bike to your size, and check that the brakes work.
Keep both hands on the handlebars, except when signaling a turn.
Look for road hazards, stay alert and listen for traffic.
When riding in the street, obey all traffic laws and go with the flow of cars.
Wear bright colors, make sure your bike has reflectors and avoid riding at night.
Remember: Just because you can see a driver, that doesn’t mean the driver can see you.
