Cycling Tip #1 - Always Wear a Helmet
Of the nation's 800 annual cycling deaths, head injuries account for about 60%.
If all cyclists wore helmets, perhaps half of these deaths and injuries --especially in
children-- could be avoided.
When selecting a helmet, choose a bright color, and make sure
the helmet fits properly. It should sit horizontally on your head and shouldn't move about.
If your helmet becomes damaged, have it repaired professionally or purchase a new one.

for riders of all ages.
