Hastings & Hastings says, "save your life, protect your brain, wear a properly fitting helmet." An adage to live by. Bicycle riders should not travel a single foot without wearing their helmet.
The condition of the bike is another key factor in bicycle safety. Riders should make adjust the fit of their bicycle to ensure that they have optimal control. Further, they should double check each bicycle tire to make sure it is properly inflated. Finally, the seat should be kept at a level where riders can comfortably touch the ground by extending their legs.
