Bike Riding Safety Tips
August 3, 2016
Check It–Before using your bicycle, make sure it is ready to ride. See the other side for a pre-ride checklist.
Protect Your Melon–Make sure your helmet is fastened, fits snugly and does not move when you shake your head.
Light Up–When riding day or night: use a headlight and tail light; wear neon or other bright colors; make sure you have reflectors on the front and rear of your bicycle.
Look, Signal & Look Again–When turning left or right, always look behind you for a break in traffic, then signal before making the turn.
Stay Alert–Know what is behind you and watch out for what is in front of you. Keep a lookout for obstacles. If you are riding with friends and you are in the lead, point to the hazard to alert the riders behind you.
Go With The Flow–Ride on the right in the same direction as other vehicles.
Act Like A Car–A bicycle is a vehicle and you’re a driver. When you ride in the street, obey all traffic signs, signals, and lane markings.
Be Predictable–Ride in a straight line–not in and out of cars–and signal your turns.
See Eye to Eye–Make eye contract with drivers whenever possible. This ensures that the motorists see you and helps you assert your rightful place on the road.
Ring My Bell–Don't underestimate the effectiveness of a horn or bell, the sound travels much farther than your voice. Use it as a polite way to let pedestrians or other cyclists know where you are.
