Bike Safety

  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Learn, use, and obey traffic signals. Remember bikers must obey the same traffic laws as motor vehicles.
  • If riding at night, use reflectors and lights.
  • Give pedestrians the right of way.
  • Ride defensively. Watch for cars and car doors opening.
  • Do not weave in and out of traffic.
  • Slow down at intersections. Look both ways before crossing.
  • Keep your bike well maintained. A regular tune up will ensure that your bike is in good riding shape.
  • When you are not riding your bike, always lock it.
  • When riding at night, make sure to wear reflective clothing and have reflectors on your bike. A light on your bike is also highly recomended.
