May is bike month and the CDC is sharing tips on how to stay safe while riding your bicycle.
Before the first time you ride your bike after the long winter break, make sure to check everything over and make sure it is working correctly.
Wear brightly colored clothing or a vest to remain visible to drivers. It is also important to wear a helmet before hitting the roads or bike trails.
Make sure to ride in the right-most lane and obey all traffic signs and signals. Look before changing lanes and make sure to signal any upcoming changes.
