Bicycle Safety Tips for the summer

Bicyle 4.2015

The weather has been so nice lately.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing, flowers are blooming and the Loveland Bike Trail is hopping!  Get out and enjoy it but remember to be safe!  In order to prevent car and bike crashes, remember to ride safely and watch for cars.  Here are some tips to keep in mind.  1.  Always ride with traffic and always as close the right as possible.  2.  Always wear a helmet.  90% of people killed in bicycle accidents were not wearing a helmet.  3.  Obey the law.  A bicyclist has the same rights as motor vehicles on the road and has to follow the same rules.  If you wouldn’t do something driving your car, don’t do it riding your bike.  4.  Don’t drink and drive.  DUI laws also apply to bike riders.  This summer ride your bike and have fun, but remember to ride safe!
