This spring, dust off your bicycle and get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. Biking is a fun activity and it is also a healthy, non-polluting way to get from one place to another. There are a few things you need to keep in mind before you hit the streets. In order to stay safe while on two wheels, keep these key words in mind:

B is for Balance. In a park or on a bike path, make sure you remain balanced on your seat and riding in a straight line.

I is for Inflate. Make sure your tires are inflated before your ride. Fully inflated tires make it easier to pedal and help prevent glass or other debris from poking a hole in your tire.

C is for Check. Look over your bike before and after each ride. Make sure everything looks safe and tight.

Y is for Yellow. It helps to wear brightly-colored clothes so you can be easily seen. Make sure you bike also has reflectors.

C is for Cautious and Courteous. Obey all traffic laws and be sure to give hand signals when turning.

L is for Look and Listen. Be aware of your surroundings. Pay attention to cars, pedestrians, and other cyclists.

E is for egg — your head is fragile like an egg! Make sure you always protect it by wearing a helmet.
