Biking

Be Smart on the Bike

Spring is here in New England with warmer weather coming which more people biking. Safety should be on the mind of all cyclists and everyone on the road.

A friend and I are having this argument: he doesn’t believe in bike helmets and likes to listen to music with his iPod. He lives in New Hampshire which has a motto: “Live Free or Die”. Yup New Hampshire does not have a law that requires cyclists/motorcyclist to wear helmets.

I believe in safety 1st! That includes wearing helmet, not listening to music and signaling  not just for other cyclists but also drivers of cars and trucks. Yes he is a rebel singing to his own tune but he won’t be doing it with me or my cycle friends. Being smart on the bike includes respecting your environment, cars, runners, walkers, cyclists and others but you will also live longer. We all need to Share the Road!
