Be seen, be safe and be lit. Cyclists, it’s that time of year to fear-up and get ready for cycling to school, work and trips around town.

·         Wear white, bright reflective clothing.
·         Heads Up at intersections.
·         Look both ways.
·         Stop, look and listen.
·         Make eye contact with drivers before you cross.

Drivers: be alert for cyclists, especially at intersections, and in low light.
·         Avoid distractions.
·         Watch for vehicles slowing down around you.
