Bicycle Safety Rules
Always wear a HELMET.
Always ride on the RIGHT side of the roadway. Always use the right lane. Never use the inside lane or the turn lane.
When riding in groups, ride in SINGLE FILE.
Vehicle laws also apply to bicycle riders. OBEY all traffic lights and signs.
WALK bicycles across busy intersections. Children have better control of themselves and the bicycle when walking. Never cross diagonally across the middle of an intersection, go corner to corner.
SIGNAL YOUR TURNS. Hand signals now in use involve:
Left Turn: extending the left arm straight out from the body, parallel to the ground.
Right Turn: extending the right arm straight out from the body, parallel to the ground.
Stop/Slow Signal: extend the left arm straight out from the body, parallel to the ground with arm bent down at the elbow (forearm extends downwards).
Look in all directions before crossing the street. Shoulder Check.
Never take passengers.
As much as possible avoid busy streets.
Keep your bike in good condition.
