Bike Safety Tips from the National Safety Council
Inspect your bike before riding.
Check your seat, tires, reflectors, horn, or bell to make certain all parts are secure and working properly.
Plan to be seen.
Make certain drivers can see you by wearing bright colors, riding during the day when possible, and using reflective clothing and flashing lights at night.
Always wear a helmet.
Helmets appropriate for bicycling should be worn by everyone - adults and children - on every bike ride regardless of length of the ride. When purchasing the helmet, check fit and certification for safety.
Follow the Rules of the Road.
Bicyclists follow the same rules as motorists. Remain alert when biking. Use hand signals when turning and use extra care at intersections. Remember to stop, look and listen before entering traffic.
