Safe Bicycling  (Introduction)

Bicycle accidents and injuries are a source of concern for all of us. Most accidents are preventable.

Five main topics govern safety. Most can be attended to and most risks minimized.

1. Keep bicycle equipment safe-well maintained in mechanically sound working order.

2. Acquire the riding skills and techniques to operate a bicycle safely.

3. Know how bicycle-car accidents commonly occur.

4. Ride in a safe and defensive manner.

5. Use specialized safety equipment.
