Being Safer on Your Bicycle
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Did you know that four out of five accidents between bicycles and cars are the fault of the bicyclist? It's true. So, even though you have probably been riding your bike for a long time, it's always important to protect yourself and refresh your memory involving these basic rules of bicycle safety.
 
2     1. First and foremost, ALWAYS wear a helmet. This means whether you are close to or far from home. Think about it. The distance you fall is the same whether you are far from or near to home. Wearing a helmet can prevent many injuries. Make sure the helmet protects your head without slipping. Eighty-five percent of serious head injuries could have been prevented with a helmet, so make sure that your helmet fits correctly! The rim of the helmet should be about two finger-widths above the eyebrows. The straps of the helmet should form a V beneath the ear. The buckle of the helmet should fit under the chin. (The cyclist should feel the snug strap when he or she opens his or her mouth.)
 
3     2. If your bike is meant for only one person, only one person should be riding on it.
