Feel like a know-it-all when it comes to Bike Safety?
After all May is bike safety month.
- Buy and wear a helmet and check that its label says it complies with U.S. CPSC Safety Standards;
- Make sure your helmet fits snugly and the chin strap forms a V around the ears;
- Keep your bicycle tires filled with the proper amount of air;
- Ride on the right side of the road in a straight, predictable path.
Even though you likely have heard those tips, when’s the last time you checked for bicycle recalls? In the past year CPSC has recalled about 20 bicycles and bicycle parts.
