Tips for Staying Safe On Your Bike

Keep the following tips in mind to help you stay safe while riding your bicycle:

  • Wear a bicycle helmet and light, reflective clothing.
  • Ride with the flow of traffic, not toward oncoming vehicles.
  • Light up your bike in the front and back when riding at night and even during the day.
  • Take special care at intersections and when turning.
  • Always follow the proper rules of the road, as bicycles are considered the same as cars on the road.

We hope these tips help you stay safe on your bicycle.
