Riding Your Bike

  • Always ride with a friend and let an adult know where you are going.
  • Check your bike to make sure the tires are inflated and the brakes are working.  Put reflectors on the front and back of your bike.
  • Wear your safety helmet and pads for protection.
  • If you ride on the street, keep to the right and follow all traffic signs.
  • Be on the lookout for traffic, yield to vehicles and signal when turning.
  • Use the crosswalks and yield to pedestrians.  If you have to cross at an intersection, look both ways and walk your bike to the other side.
  • Stay alert and watch out for hazards.
  • When you park your bike, make sure you lock it up.  Register your bike and serial number with the police department.
