Biking Safety Tips

  • Ensure your bike seat is properly adjusted to fit you.
  • Wear the helmet provided at all times when riding the bike.
  • Use hand signals before making turns or changing lanes to warn traffic around you.
  • Be as visible as possible to others; if you are biking at night, wear reflective clothing. Reflective gear is available for a small fee upon request.
  • Ride in the same direction as traffic so you are more visible to drivers entering roads or changing lanes.
