BICYCLE SAFETY

Cycling accidents kill thousands of people every year. There are simple safety precautions you can take to minimize risks to you while riding.
  • Always wear a properly fitted helmet.
  • Make sure you know how to operate all parts of the bike as well as the road rules related to cycling.
  • Remember that cyclists have the same rights to the road as other vehicles, and are subject to the same signs, lights, and other traffic controls that would apply to a car or truck.
  • At night, make sure to wear bright colors.
  • Make sure your bike has front and rear reflectors and that your brakes are working correctly.
  • Wear a reflective vest and use a headlamp and bell.

TIPS FOR GROUP RIDING

  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Always travel with the direction of traffic.
  • When cars approach from the rear, get in single file.
  • If you are in the front, call out your intentions (example, “Slowing,” “Stopping”), as well as any hazards you may see.
  • If you need to stop, pull completely off any pavement.
  • Keep a safe distance between you and other riders.
  • Alert other cyclists when passing by calling, “On your left.”
