Safe Biking Tips:

  • Ride toward the right side of the road, leaving ample room on right to maneuver in an emergency. And always ride in the same direction as the traffic.
  • Ride single file unless you know it is safe to ride double-file. Never ride more than double-file.
  • Drivers signal their intentions to other drivers; so should cyclists:
  • Warn other cyclists of hazards.
  • When passing, say “on your left.”
  • Use turn signals.
  • When slowing or stopping, say “slowing” or “stopping.”
  • No headphones; you need to hear cars approaching and warnings from other cyclists.
