May is National Bike Month, the perfect time to celebrate the sport we know and love.
Established in 1956, National Bike Month is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and is an opportunity to showcase bike safety and the benefits of bicycling, while encouraging people to give it a try.
As communities from coast to coast hold events and activities, we are celebrating by sharing some important safety tips, 3 great benefits of bicycling, and community events going on in and around Orange County.
We hope you’ll take the time to get out on your bike this month and share your appreciation of cycling with someone new.
Bike Safety Tips
First up, some safety reminders. At Sariol Legal Cycling, we help clients who have been in cycling accidents to recover and get the settlements they need to move on with their lives. Trust us when we say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While the sport is fun and has many benefits, it’s also presents risks. Here’s a few safety tips to keep in mind:
- Always obey traffic laws
- Stay alert
- Wear a helmet
- Make yourself visible
- Use hand signals when riding in traffic
- Make sure your bike is in good working condition
By riding responsibly, you can reap all of the positive benefits of riding a bike.
