Bike Safety Tips

  • Always wear a bike helmet
  • Ride on the right, never ride against traffic
  • Ride in the right lane or bike lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards
  • Ride no more than two abreast, returning to single-file if riding two abreast would impede the flow of traffic
  • On curving canyon roads without bike lanes or shoulders, play it safe and ride single file
  • Use hand signals to indicate left or right turns, slowing or stopping
  • Use a headlight, tail light, and reflectors at night
  • Obey traffic laws, signs, and signals
  • Never expect the cars to see you, but ride defensively to get home alive
