Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, many are engaging in fun summertime activities like bike riding. Now is a great time to remind everyone to ride on the safe side!
Did you know there were more than 450,000 injuries that landed people in emergency departments in the U.S. in 2016? And, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) more than 800 bicyclists died in 2015 due to motor-vehicle-related crashes on public roads and highways.
Check out the bike safety tips below to ensure a safe ride all summer.
