Tips for Safer Bicycling

  • Be alert: Scan ahead, center, to the left and right. Keep your head up and look ahead, not at the ground. Do not wear headphones while riding.
  • Be conspicuous: Ride where people can see you and wear bright clothing. Make eye contact with others and don’t ride on sidewalks.
  • Be predictable: Make your intentions clear to everyone on the road. Ride in a straight line and don’t swerve between parked cars. Signal turns and check behind you before turning or changing lanes.
  • Be smart: One person per bike. Check your bike tires, brakes and chain before each ride. Follow the rules of the road and ride on the right side of the road, never against traffic.
  • Be wary: Pay attention to vehicles, pedestrians and others on the road. Watch for turning vehicles and cars pulling in and out of driveways. Ride outside the door zone of parked cars. Look out for debris, potholes and other road hazards.
