The end of summer is just around the corner, but warm weather means there’s still time for biking before cold weather and school get in the way. But make sure your ride doesn’t send you to the emergency room. Your safety list should start with wearing a helmet on every right, but don’t stop there. Check these off your list too: wear bright reflective clothing and have reflectors and lights on your bikes; on roads ride with traffic in a single file; obey all traffic signs and signals; watch for cars turning or exiting driveways; ride defensively – be aware of your surroundings and expect the unexpected; and use hand signals when turning or stopping.
