Biking: Play! It Safe

Summer is a great time to get outside on your bike and enjoy nature. It is very tempting to throw caution to the wind and live dangerously. Television, movies, video games, and commercials can lure a risk-taking public into pushing the limits.

We would like to encourage people to think through all of the consequences prior to embarking on an adventure. There are definitely some risks worth taking. Just be sure the risk you choose will not put someone else in danger.

Biking

Minnesota was just cited as the number one bicycling city in the nation. There are many great roads and trails to ride and explore.

Ride smart. Wear a helmet. Remember that bikes follow the same laws as motor vehicles. Ride defensively, too.

If you do get into a bike accident, call the police and insist the officer file an accident report. It is important to protect your rights.

  • Do not discuss the bike accident with the driver or insurance company without talking to a personal injury attorney first.
  • Get the name, address, phone number, and license number of the driver. Also, get pertinent insurance information.
  • Get names and phone numbers of eyewitnesses.
  • Take pictures at the scene, including the vehicle and the bicycle.
  • Be checked by a doctor.
