Info for Adults

Most adults learned how to ride a bike when they were kids. For many of us, there’s much more to learn! Those who expand their knowledge of safe bicycling practices have better safety records and are more confident riding on streets to more places. A great place to start is our BikeSafetyQuiz, which helps you discover what you don’t know – and fills in the gaps with illustrated explanations.

Bicycling can be a terrific way to commute to work, run errands, and skip the parking quagmires around popular destinations. Safety isn’t the only concern for adult cyclists. Figuring out how to dress, carry items, handle inclement weather, and select safe, interesting routes can help you get the most from your bicycle.
