While it’s the responsibility of motor vehicle operators to take great care while driving and look out for bicyclists, it’s the cyclists too who are responsible for taking the proper safety precautions to safeguard their well-being. It is important to know bicycle safety precautions. To protect yourself on Michigan highways and to abide by laws that pertain to bicyclists, make the following efforts before you hop on your bike:

• Wear a helmet. There is no law demanding that citizens wear a helmet while riding a bicycle, but common sense should prevail in this situation.

• Wear reflective gear. If you’re going to be a cyclist who chooses to ride alongside motor vehicles, do yourself and other drivers the favor of wearing the proper gear so that you can be seen in shaded areas and especially at night.

• Do not use your cell phone. You need two hands to operate a bicycle. While veteran cyclists or overconfident newbies may feel completely comfortable riding their bike while using a smartphone, resist the temptation. Keep both hands on your bike, and don’t allow yourself to be distracted by ear buds.

• Choose routes with bike lanes. When an area of the city or suburbs has designated bike lanes, use them! Bike lanes are there for your safety and to make your travels easier and far less perilous as you mix with large vehicles.
