Ride Your Bike Safely
Riding bikes is a great way to get active. Riding a bike can help you:
Get in shape
Lower your risk of health conditions like heart disease
Save money on gas
Riding bikes is also a great way to spend time with your family and get active together. If you have kids, teach them to bike safely right from the start.
Follow these safety tips every time you ride.
Ride a bike that’s the right size for you.
Check the brakes before you ride.
Always wear a bike helmet that fits correctly.
Wear bright colors and reflective tape.
Avoid wearing things that can get caught in your bike chain, like loose pants.
Ride in the same direction as cars and follow the "rules of the road."
If possible, ride on a bike path that's separate from cars.
A bike crash could send you to the emergency room. But the good news is that many bike injuries can be prevented.
Follow the “rules of the road.”
Look both ways before entering the street.
Ride in the same direction as the cars.
Stop at all stop signs and intersections.
Use hand signals to show others what you plan to do next.
For a left turn, look behind you, hold your left arm straight out to the side, and turn carefully.
For a right turn, hold your left arm out and up in an “L” shape.
To signal that you are stopping, hold your left arm out and down in an upside-down “L” shape.
Use your left hand to make these signals for left turn, right turn, and stop.
Paying attention to the things around you can help you stay safe.
Look for potholes, rocks, wet leaves, or anything that could make you fall.
Be aware of cars that are parking or backing up.
Listen for traffic and other activity around you. Don’t wear headphones when you ride.
Try not to ride in bad weather – but if you must, go slowly.
