Be Smart!
Protect Your Brain

Cyclists who wear a helmet reduce their risk of head injury by about 60 percent and brain injury by 58 percent, according to the National Safety Council. When you think about it, that does actually make sense considering that your head is the first part of your body to fly forward in a bike accident. Helmets should adhere to federal safety standards and should fit securely.

Be Prepared!
Know the Rules

Here are some more great tips for bike safety from the National Safety Council:

  • Get acquainted with traffic laws. Cyclists must follow the same rules as motorists.
  • Know your bike’s capabilities.
  • Ride single-file in the direction of traffic, and watch for opening car doors and other hazards.
  • Use hand signals when turning and use extra care at intersections.
  • Before entering traffic, stop and look left, right, left again and over your shoulder.
  • Wear bright clothing and ride during the day. If night riding can’t be avoided, wear reflective clothing.
  • Make sure the bike is equipped with reflectors on the rear, front, pedals and spokes.
