Reminders of Good Bike Riding Habits



Coming directly from the Oregon Bicyclist Manual, here are the 4 basic principles of bicycling:

Maintain control of your bicycle. (be careful of objects on and along the roadside such as debris, rocks, mailboxes, or parked vehicles.)
Ride on the right, with traffic, in a predictable manner.
Be visible and ride alertly.
Protect yourself (Always wear a helmet) All riders under 16 years of age must, by law, wear an approved bicycle helmet when riding on a public way.
