Bike Safety

A message from the Federation of Calgary Communities

  1. Protect Your Noggin
  • Toddlers to adults should think twice before getting on a bike without a helmet. The helmet should fit nicely and cover the forehead. Calgarians under the age of 18 are required to wear a helmet.
  1. Ring, Ring!
  • Having bell can let those around you know you’re coming!
  1. Stop!
  • Being a cyclist follows similar rules to driving a vehicle. Pay attention to posted signs, speed limits and watch out for pedestrians.
  • Know your route ahead of time. This can help you be aware of potential detours and hazards.
  1. Increase Visibility
  • Having reflector or lights can increase your visibility for other cyclists, pedestrians, and cars.
