Ride Safe: Know Before You Go

The RTC continues its commitment to safety and has partnered with the Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition (SNVBC) to promote its Ride Safe: Know Before You Go campaign throughout the month. The educational program identifies five critical points of gear and behavior for cyclists to keep top-of-mind: Protect Your Head, Be Visible, Choose Safe Routes, Be Predictable, and Ride Defensively.

“Cyclists’ behavior and decision-making are integral to achieving a zero-collision goal. As we ask motorists to learn about cyclist behavior and consider our presence on the road, cyclists must be predictable and plan safe routes before riding,” said Rob Hutchinson, SNVBC’s president. “Ride Safe’s points need to be second nature for everyone riding a bicycle, new and seasoned cyclists, alike.”
