Read the following instructions for riding your bikes and then answer the questions.

IMPORTANT TIPS FOR OFF-ROAD SAFETY

Lights

Lights are very important for trail riding if you're not 100% sure that you'll be out of the forest by sundown.

Your Route

It's always best not to go out alone, but if you do, always tell someone the area/route you plan to ride and when to expect you back.

Hydration

Water bottles may be preferred by roadies, but you don't have the same opportunities to refill when on the trail. Hydration packs are not only preferred for long trail rides, they can be a medical necessity to keep well hydrated. And if you're carrying the backpack, energy bars or other sources of packaged energy may also be important.

Extra Tubes

Carry an extra tube and patch kit. The patch kit will fix a small hole, but it's good to have an entire tube for a big hole.

Face/Skin Protection

Carry insect repellent and sunscreen. Wear eye protection, even if you don't wear prescription glasses. You will need protection from sticks, branches, insects, and flying stones.

Clothing

Carry a long sleeve T-shirt in case the weather turns bad. These shirts are lightweight, compressible and can fit in small packs. Remember, you're riding in the mountains a lot of times and weather can change quickly in those settings.

Trail Etiquette

• Always respect private property owner's rights.

• Bikers yield to all other trail users.

• Do not ride trails posted as "no biking".

• Do not ride during extremely wet conditions so that environmental impacts are minimized.

• Know the rules when riding on public lands such as state parks or hunting lands.

• Never leave garbage/rubbish on the trails!

1. Why is it a good idea to take a hydration pack with you on a trail route?

2. What type of T-shirt should you wear? Why?

3. Should you put light on the bike? Why?

Luciano Sánchez Rodríguez IES El Fontanal – Class 2B Top Bicycle Safety Rules 1. Always wear

Top Bicycle Safety Rules

1. Always wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet to protect your head – every time you ride.

2. Use a bicycle that is the appropriate size for you, not one that is too big.

3. Before you ride make sure you don’t have any loose clothing, drawstrings, or shoelaces; they

can get caught in your chain and make you fall.

4. Have an adult check the air in your tires and that your brakes are working before you ride.

5. Wear bright clothes so others can see you at all times of the day.

6. Stay alert at all times; never listen to music when riding. Pay attention and watch for cars,

people, and other bicyclists around you.

7. Don’t bicycle at night. If you must ride, make sure your bike has reflectors and lights and wear

retro-reflective materials on your ankles, wrists, back and helmet.

8. Before you enter any street or intersection check for traffic by looking left-right-left to make

sure no cars or trucks are there.

9. Learn and follow the rules of the road.

Rules of the Road

1. When riding in the road, always ride on the right hand side (same direction as traffic).

2. Obey traffic laws, including all the traffic signs and signals.

3. Ride predictably—ride in a straight line, don’t weave in and out of traffic.

4. When riding on a sidewalk -- show respect for the people walking on the sidewalk. Ring

your bell to let them know you are coming and always pass them on the left.

5. Look for debris on your route that could cause you to fall off your bicycle, like trash,

stones, toys.
