Health Tip: Biking Safely

-- Biking is a great way to stay in shape, save gas and reduce pollution.

But the estimated 80 million cyclists sharing the road with vehicles often face a host of hazards, says the National Safety Council.

To stay safe, the NSC recommends:

  • Become familiar with traffic laws.
  • Ride single-file in the direction of traffic.
  • Use hand signals when turning.
  • Never hitch onto cars.
  • Wear bright clothing.
  • Equip your bike with reflectors.
