Improve Your Riding Skills
- No one learns to drive a vehicle safely without practice and experience; safely riding your bike in traffic requires the same preparation. Start by riding your bike in a safe environment away from traffic (a park, path, or empty parking lot).
- Take an on-bike class through your school, recreation department, local bike shop or bike advocacy group.
- Confidence in traffic comes with learning how to navigate and communicate with other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
- Review and practice as a safe pedestrian or bicyclist is great preparation for safe riding.
