Safety tips from the Minnesota Department of Transportation:
  • Follow the law – obey all traffic signs and signals.

  • Ride in the same direction as traffic.

  • Be predictable – maintain a straight course.

  • Communicate your intent – look, yield to traffic and signal before turning or changing lanes.

  • Use extreme caution near commercial vehicles

  • Pass only on the left.

  • See and be seen – wear bright colors, reflective gear and use head and tail lights.

  • Wear a helmet.

  • Stick to roads and trails – sidewalk riding puts you at risk for crashes at driveways and intersections.

  • Always yield to pedestrians.

  • Avoid distracted bicycling – put away mobile devices and headphones.
