How to ride safely on the road - Ridesmart

Effective communication and consideration will help keep you safe while out riding on open roads.

It is very rare that you will ride on closed roads, so learning how to ride with awareness of other road users is important. Keep yourself safe by giving yourself space while also offering consideration to other road users. Clear hands signals and calls will make people aware of your intentions.
