Lock It or Lose It!

The best way to keep your bike and mobility devices safe from thieves is to lock it properly. Lock the frame with a sturdy burly chain or U-Lock, and secure the wheels (or other quick-release components) with your lock will ensure your bike is just the way you left it. Cable locks can be cut by theives.

Bicycle Safety Tips when Riding

  • Intersections - take extra caution and pay attention to cross traffic and turning vehicles.
  • Right Hook - be wary of right turning cars in front of you.
  • Door Zone - give yourself enough distance between you and parked cars to avoid suddenly opening doors, even when you are riding in the bike lane.
  • Storm Gates and Gutters - both can cause you to fall.  Avoid grates that can grab your tire and gutters full of debris.
  • Potholes and Sharp Objects - avoid these because they can cause flats.
  • Rail Crossings - the tracks can catch your front wheel and are slippery when wet. The safest way to approach rail crossings is at a 90 degree angle.
  • Riding at Night - when riding at night you want to make sure others can see you. State law (CVC 21201) requires that you have a white front light and red reflector on the rear. Lights that blink increase your visibility and save batteries.

Bicycle Information

Pick your bike route, calculate the total mileage, how many calories you will burn, and topography information before you take your ride on your bike! 

In the “jump to” box, enter your starting address and click “go.” Then, on the left menu, click on “start recording.” From here, you can begin to plot your route by double-clicking anywhere on the map. It’s best to map/click in small segments, because if you create a long distance between points, the map will find the shortest distance between the two points and won’t necessarily follow your particular route. You can save your route by clicking on “save route,” and that will generate a URL specific to your data that you can bookmark, e-mail, etc. You can enter your weight for approximate calories burned, and turn on/off the elevation graph and mile markers.
