Biking With Peace Of Mind

Biking Safety Tips

Whether you and the kids are biking around the neighborhood or venturing out to the roads, there are a few essential safety tips that must be followed at all times. Avoid accidents by keeping these vital safety tips in mind:

  • The importance of wearing a properly fitted helmet cannot be stressed enough. There is no point in wearing a helmet that will fall off of your head during an accident.
  • Make a habit to check your equipment before each ride. This means inflating the tires and checking the brakes.
  • Stick to the rule “see and be seen,” as this is extremely important no matter where you are riding. You cannot simply assume that motorists see you.
  • It is best to avoid riding your bike at night if at all possible.
  • Even though you are on your bike, it is important that you watch for road hazards so that you can take proper precautions. Keep an eye out for broken glass, potholes, dogs, and gravel.
