Follow these 3 tips for safer cycling

Cyclists face serious harm on the roads, even in places like Pasadena, where it's common to see them. A cyclist may be riding in a bike lane and suddenly end up in an accident with a vehicle that pushes too far over, or they could be hit when a vehicle turns right, and the driver doesn't look to see if anyone is in the lane next to them.

As a cyclist, there are some things you can do to protect yourself against injuries. Here are three things that can help prevent serious wounds and crashes.

1. Get to know your local laws

The first thing to do is to make sure you know the local laws and what you can do to stay as safe as possible on the roads. You want to make sure not to bike in areas that are prohibited, for example, and should follow all laws accordingly.

2. Be aware of your surroundings

Another thing to do is to be aware of your surroundings. While it might seem like a good idea to listen to music or to chat on a phone call while you ride, it's better to stay alert, listen and look for potential hazards.

3. Know your route

Finally, know your route. You should look into the safest times to ride as well as the safest routes for cyclists. Choose routes with less traffic, so that there's a lower risk of a collision.

These are some tips to help keep you safe. Be aware, know your route and know the law, so you can get to your destination safely.
