Bike Safety Tips
  • Always wear your bike helmet. If you hit your head in a fall, the injury could make it hard for you to talk or walk.
  • Check your brakes before you head out to ride.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Ride in single file in the same direction as traffic, not against it. Stay as far right on the pavement as you can.
  • Signal your turns.
  • Yield to cars and people on foot.
  • Don't ride through busy intersections or on streets with heavy traffic. Find another way to go.
  • Walk your bike across busy intersections and left turn corners.
