Cycling Safety

Cycling accidents are common in the United States – especially as it becomes a more and more popular activity. About 2 percent of motor vehicle accidents involve a bicycle. In 2019, nearly 900 bicyclists were killed in accidents involving motor vehicles with thousands more injured. Make sure you are always wearing a helmet and paying close attention to your surroundings. Wearing bright, reflective clothing is also highly recommended – even in the daytime. If you are riding at night, make sure you are easily visible with a headlight and flashing rear lights. In addition, make sure to follow all traffic laws if you are riding on the road.
