The Adventures in Biking Safely – March is Florida Bicycle Month!
Florida’s weather in March is perfect for biking, so get out and ride. With many drivers and cyclists on the road this month, let’s gear up with some bicycle safety reminders.
Drivers: Share the road with bicyclists and always pass or follow cyclists with at least a 3 foot barrier.
Bicyclists: Wear a helmet, ride on the right and make sure drivers can see you with bright clothing and reflectors or lights on your bike.
