Health Tip: Biking Safely

(HealthDay News) -- Biking is a great way to stay in shape, save gas and reduce pollution.

But the estimated 80 million cyclists sharing the road with vehicles often face a host of hazards, says the National Safety Council.

To stay safe, the NSC recommends:

  • Become familiar with traffic laws.

  • Ride single-file in the direction of traffic.

  • Use hand signals when turning.

  • Never hitch onto cars.

  • Wear bright clothing.

  • Equip your bike with reflectors.
