Every year thousands of people are injured and hundreds of people are killed while riding bicycles.
- Protect your head. Always wear a helmet.
- Obey all traffic laws and lights. Bicycles must follow the rules of the road likes other vehicles.
- Act like a car. Drivers are used to the patterns of other drivers. Don't weave in and out of traffic. The more predictably you ride, the safe you are. Check for traffic. Be aware of traffic around you.
- Use hand signals. Hand signals tell motorists and pedestrians what you intend to do. Signal as a matter of law, of courtesy, and of self-protection.
You are good to go! Stay safe.
