Basic Safety

Here are four basic bicycling tips

Maintain control

The following are things you can do to maintain control of your bicycle, even in an emergency:

  • Make sure that your bike is the right size and that it is correctly adjusted to suit you.
  • A bicycle that is properly fitted is more comfortable and easier to manage.
  • A bicycle shop will help you pick the correct bicycle size.
  • Ensure that your bicycle is in good working order by periodically checking it.

Protect Yourself

Properly-fitted helmets protect against a potentially life-threatening injury to the head. By law, when riding on a public road, bicycle riders under 18 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet.

Wear your helmet per manufacturer directions.

Be Visible and Alert

Even if you follow all traffic rules, the possibility of a collision is still present.

  • Be prepared to brake for vehicles waiting at stop signs, in driveways, or parking spaces.
  • Be prepared to take evasive action on vehicles that have just passed you, and you may turn right.
  • Use hand signals to warn traffic around you before making turns or changing lanes.

Ride in a Safe Lane Position

Ride in the same direction as traffic so that you are more visible to drivers entering roads or changing lanes in the following scenarios:

  • Passing a vehicle or a bicycle.
  • Preparing to turn right at the intersection.
  • If the lane is too narrow for a bicycle,
  • When you approach the right turn.
  • If there is a one-way road with two or more lanes.

The Client will not change or modify the Equipment

The Client will not change or modify the Equipment without Bike Kona’s agreement. If the Client changes or modifies the Equipment without Bike Breaks’s agreement, such changes or modifications will be considered damage, and clause 7) will apply.
