This weekend is going to be a great one to hit one of Omaha’s trails for a walk or for a bike ride!
If you’re riding your bike, always remember a helmet- here are some tips for a safe helmet:
-Check to make sure it has a sticker inside certifying that it meets the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s standard.
-Be sure it sits level on your head, touches your head all around and fits snug but not tight.
-Choose a helmet that is round and smooth on the outside with no sharp ribs, snag points or excessive vents. Also, select bright colors so motorists can see it.
When riding, always:
-Go With the Traffic Flow. Ride on the right in the same direction as other vehicles.
-Obey All Traffic Laws. A bicycle is a vehicle and you’re a driver.
-Yield to Traffic When Appropriate.
-Stay Alert at All Times.
-Look Before Turning.
-Watch for Parked Cars.
Have a great weekend!
