Bicycling Safety Tips For Commuters In The Big City

When you are looking to ride your bike for your commute, you will find that it can be intimidating to do it in the big city. The busier the traffic is, the more dangerous it can be, so do what you can to mitigate your risks.

Always ride with a helmet on. Make sure that you choose a helmet that is well-fitted to your head, and that you never wear a helmet after it has suffered a heavy impact. A helmet is really meant for a single use.

Stay in the bike lanes if you have them. If you do not, simply stay as far to the right as you can. This can make things a little unnerving if you have to make a left turn,, but do your best to stay wide of the cars.

Always make sure that you are as visible as possible. Flags on upright rods are important when you are dealing with recumbent bikes, and if you ride at night at all, make sure that you plaster your clothing with reflector strips.

Beware of doors. If you are in a bike lane, be very careful of people who are parked opening their doors into you. Watch any people who are sitting in the cars carefully.
