May is National Bike Month!
Bike Safety Tip of the Day:
Take extra precautions when riding on a roadway. Bicycles are smaller than motor vehicles, and don't protect the operator like a motor vehicle.
Keep control of your bicycle: look behind you while maintaining your bicycle in a straight path; be able to ride with one hand on the handlebars and signal a turn.
Always look over your shoulder, and if possible, signal before changing lanes.
Make sure that books, clothes, and other items are securely attached to the bicycle or carried in a backpack.
Use bells, horns, or your voice to alert pedestrians and bicyclists that your are approaching or passing.
