Bicycling Safety Tips

  • Wear a helmet
    Head injuries account for 85% of all bicycle accident injuries
  • Obey all traffic signs
  • Ride single file and keep to the right
  • Ride in small groups widely spaced
  • Make stops on the straightaway rather than at the top of hills or curves
  • When stopping, move completely off the road to allow cars to pass safely
  • Make yourself visible with bright clothing and reflectors
  • Use lights for night riding
  • Be alert for dogs
  • Respect the rights of property owners
    Most land and many local roads are privately owned.

Emergency: Dial 911 OR (from cell phone) Call (360) 468-4141 .

For non-emergencies for fire, EMS or sheriff, call (360) 378-4151.

For more information please visit the County bicycling site at:
www.sanjuanco.com/publicworks/bicycle_safety.aspx. Along with a copy of the brochure and safety tips, there is a link   within that page  showing the road projects for the year.   That's handy information for bicyclists to plan which roads to avoid when possible.
