Safety Tips for On-Street Bicycling.Ride predictably, act like a good driver. Drivers are used to the patterns of other drivers. Ride in a straight line, obey traffic signs and signals, and do not weave in and out of traffic. Riding predictably reduces your chances of a crash with a motor vehicle. Look, signal and look again before changing lanes or making a turn. Establish eye contact with drivers. Seeing a driver is often not enough. Make sure drivers see you before executing a turn or riding in front of a turning car. Watch out for opening car doors. Be prepared for the possibility that a car door may be opened in your path. When possible, leave room between yourself and parked cars (3 feet is generally recommended) so that you can avoid a door that opens unexpectedly. Stay visible. Wear brightly colored clothing for daytime riding. At night, use reflective materials and lights. Use Your bell. Your bell alerts drivers, pedestrians and other cyclists to your presence, it is required by law. Wear a helmet. Required by law for children age 13 or younger and working cyclists, helmets are a good idea for cyclists of all ages. While supplies last, the official New York City bicycle helmet will be fitted and distributed free of charge at DOT Safety City locations. Call 311 to schedule a fitting. In order to receive a helmet you must: be present to get a helmet; learn how to properly fit and wear a helmet before you receive it; have a parent or legal guardian present to sign a waiver for children under age 18; for adults over age 18 receiving a helmet you must sign a waiver.

Please take care and remember to always wear your helmet.

Good luck.

Hi, I just bought a second hand Huffy bicycle on eBay, and there was no instruction manual. I don't really know how to use the gears to make riding up hills easier.. can you help? I have gears on both handle bars, on the left there are 3 gears and on the right there are 7..

As a novice you have a lot to learn. I would encourage you to find local experienced cyclists and a local bicycle shop to assist and mentor you.

Stick with it and endure the initial discomfort until you get into better shape and master the intricacies of bicycle riding.

There's tons of how-to's online.

This one is a good place to start.


I'm a multi-decade adult cyclist and I watched this video. I thought it was so good I donated a buck to him.

Wear a helmet and ride on-road as you would drive a vehicle. Obey the laws. Be visible, courteous and predictable.
