No Comments

Biking around Temple University and the rest of the Philadelphia area can be tricky and frustrating at times as a cyclist. Tal Eldering, Bike Temple‘s Coordinator, took time out of his day to offer up some advice on how to be a safe biker.

First and foremost, it is always important wear a helmet, even if it looks a bit dorky. A safe head is a happy head.

Tal also mentioned to use bike lights at night, that way it is easier for other pedestrians, cyclists, and motor vehicles to see.

Having a nice meal before heading out provides energy, and keeps the mind from becoming clouded.

Tal said that a quick ABC check–air, breaks, and chain–is key to preventing most accidents that may happen on the biker’s part.

If by chance a biker are injured while riding, it is important to check the status of everyone involved. Next, if applicable, obtain insurance and contact information, and call the police.
