Bike Safety
Riding a bike is fun, a great way to exercise and good for the environment. While you’re enjoying your ride, it’s important to remember these safety tips:

  1. ALWAYS wear a helmet – Wearing a fitted helmet helps protect your brain in case there is an accident.
  2. Wear bright clothes – No matter the time of day, it’s important to wear clothes that help make you more visible to drivers. Wearing something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, is even better.
  3. Ride on the sidewalk – Whenever possible, ride on the sidewalk. Riding on the sidewalk is safer for children than riding in the street.
  4. Control your bike – Always ride with at least one hand on the handle bar. Books and other items should be placed in a bicycle carrier or backpack.
  5. Pay attention– Always be on the lookout like potholes, broken glass, puddles, cars and other potential dangers.
  6. Follow the rules – There are road rules for cars and bicycles. Stop at sidewalk corners to look for cars and make sure drivers see you before crossing.
