Wearing Your Helmet: It's Worth the Cost

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 48% of children ages 5-14 wear helmets when riding bicycles. Of the over 500,000 annual bicycle injuries requiring emergency room care, more than 26,000 of these are children and adolescents who received traumatic brain injuries from not wearing a helmet. Helmets cannot prevent accidents from happening but they can severely decrease the level of injury when accidents do occur.

Bicycle Safety Tips

Now that the weather is warming up, people are dusting off their helmets and pulling out their bicycles for transportation as well as recreation. And just like drivers have to adjust to the first snow covered road, seasonal cyclists need a refresher of the rules of the road. In many states, including Utah, bicycles are considered vehicles and cyclists must follow all of the same traffic rules and regulations as motor vehicles. Read here for Utah state bicycle laws.

Never just "walk away" after being hit by a car while cycling

Every morning before work, you wake up to log some miles on your road bike. You have been training for the last few months for the annual century ride in the spring. Usually, traffic is not very heavy, so you have become a little too complacent about the risk of cycling every morning.
