May is Bike Month - Bike Safety Tip

(Employee Wellness)

May is National Bike Month

Bike Safety Tip of the Day -
Assure readiness - ensure proper size of bicycle. Use a bicycle that fits you!

- Select size: stand over the top of your bicycle - there should be 1-2 inches of clearance between you and the tube (bar) and 5 inches of clearance if riding a mountain bike.

- Adjust seat height - with a foot on the pedal, the fully extended leg should have a slight bend.

Experienced staff at local bicycle shops can assist you in choosing the correct size and style of bicycle for your needs.
