This week’s tip is about rider safety  and good road sense. First off you should ALWAYS wear a helmet!  Most cycling deaths are due to head injuries.

Don't wear headphones, you're depriving yourself of one of your senses . Headphones block out the sounds of oncoming traffic and traffic approaching from behind .

Maintain good road sense - Ride with traffic, obeytraffic lights and all signs, and give right of way to cars. Use hand signals to alert drivers to your intentions.

Watch out for potholes & debris on the roads and if in a group call out the hazards to your fellow cyclists.
