Follow the rules, ride safely

  • Do a pre-ride check

    Check tire pressure, try the grip bell, and if you’re riding at night check the front and rear lights.

  • Wear a helmet

    Wear a helmet whenever you ride. Replace your helmet after any crash. Avoid common helmet mistakes such as loose straps.

  • Follow the rules

    Yield to pedestrians. Stop at all red lights and stop signs. Ride in the direction of traffic. Use the grip bell to signal your presence.

  • Be predictable

    Make it easy for the traffic around you. Don’t make unexpected turns, and ride at a steady pace.

  • Signal for turns

    Use hand signals, and don’t turn or change lanes without knowing the position of the cars and bikes around you.

  • Plan a sensible route

    Plan a safe route before you ride. Have a favorite route? Let your community know.
