Tips on Bicycling Safety From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
Date:3/23/2009

a bike:

  • Wear bright fluorescent colors and avoid biking at night. If biking at night, make sure to have rear reflectors and a working headlight visible from 500 feet away.
  • Avoid plastic pedals, which can be slippery when wet and cause your feet to stray off the pedal.
  • Stay alert and watch for obstacles.
  • Consider using training wheels for young and first-time riders.
  • Ride in the direction of traffic and be aware of surrounding traffic. Obey all rules of the road; bicycles are vehicles, too.
  • Do not ride double, attempt stunts or go too fast.
  • Avoid loose clothing and wear appropriate footwear. Use pant leg clips to keep clothing grease-free and out of the bicycle chain.
  • Avoid riding on uneven or slippery surfaces. All types of brakes may not work as well when wheels are wet and require more distance to stop.
  • Drinking enough fluids, stretching and scheduling routine activity can help avoid injuries related to overuse.
  • Ensure the bicycle is properly adjusted for your height and well-maintained. Replace broken or missing parts.
