What type of coverage do you need?

With the weather warming up and hopefully the rain subsiding for a bit, the Northeast will start seeing more bikes on the roadway, trails, and in parks.  The US Consumer Product Safety Commission would like to remind cyclists to check-out their latest release of bike recalls.   Find their list here

Here are some safe riding tips brought to you by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

Go with the traffic flow.  Ride on the right in the same direction as other vehicles.

  • Obey all traffic laws.  When you ride in the street, obey all traffic signs, signals, and lane markings.
  • Yield to traffic when appropriate.  This also means yielding to pedestrians that have already entered a crosswalk.
  • Be predictable.  Ride in a straight line, not in and out of cars.  Signal your moves to others.
  • Stay alert at all times.  Watch out for potholes, cracks, wet leaves, storm grates, or anything that could make you lose control of your bike.  You need your ears to hear traffic and avoid dangerous situations; don’t wear a headset when you ride.
  • Look before turning.  When turning left or right, always look behind you for a break in traffic, then signal before making the turn.  Watch for left- or right-turning traffic.
  • Watch for Parked Cars.  Ridge far enough out from the curb to avoid the unexpected from parked cars (like doors opening, or cars pulling out).

Bicycling is a great way to stay in shape, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with your family and friends.  The Weimer Group hopes you have a great summer and enjoy bicycling.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and upload some of your favorite biking adventures and trails.  We’d love to know where you enjoy biking.
