Cycling Safety

SAFETY INFORMATION FOR ALL RIDERS                                                                                       

NOTE:  Most cycling accidents are bike on bike, not bike on car.

Create a safe environment by:

  • Speaking with your hands – by signaling.
    Let other riders and motorists know what you are about to do.
  • Avoiding confrontations with motorists even if their conduct is clearly wrong.
    You’ll only make it worse for other riders.
  • Following the same traffic rules you would if you were driving a car.
  • Checking all directions for vehicles before changing lanes.

Before you ride:

  • All riders must wear a helmet – no exceptions
  • Take advantage of free bike safety checks with our mechanics before you start.
  • Listen to the starter’s safety talk and ask any questions you have.

Safety Rules — Please Read!

SituationWhat to do
You may double up when you are not impeding traffic. Tripling up and higher are traffic violations.
Pass only on the left, and call out “On your left!” when passing.
Use hand signals when turning or when stopping.
Don’t follow too closely.

Share the road.
