With warmer weather just around the corner Sgt.Bryant, LPD's Bike Unit coordinator, would like to share some basic bicycle safety tips that will help keep you safe this riding season. 1. Wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet, even if you don’t think you need to. Do your research and get a quality helmet - it may save your life 2. Adjust your bicycle to fit. Stand over your bicycle. There should be 1 to 2 inches between you and the top tube (bar) if using a road bike and 3 to 4 inches if a mountain bicycle. The seat should be level front to back. The seat height should be adjusted to allow a slight bend at the knee when the leg is fully extended. The handlebar height should be at the same level with the seat. Riding a bike that is the appropriate size and style for you will go a long way in helping you control the bike. 3. Before you ride always make sure your equipment is in good working order. Tires should be properly inflated and ensure that your brakes are working properly as well. 4. Be seen - try to wear bright or even reflective clothing. If you’re going to be riding in or near the roadway it’s a good idea to have some sort of lighting system on your bike as well. 5. Always be in control. Keep at least one hand on the bars at all times and if you need to carry something along your journey, a backpack is a great way to carry your cargo and keep both hands free. 6. Try to avoid riding at night. However, if you must then make sure your bike has plenty of reflectors and/or a good flashing light to aid in visibility for on coming motorists. Cycling is a great way to have fun, stay fit, and explore your community. Just always remember that most cycling injuries occur because of poor choices made by the cyclist such as not wearing a helmet, darting in-and-out of traffic, or simply not paying attention and following the rules of the road. Safe riding!
