Summer is when cyclists in the land of living skies get out for exercise, enjoying good weather and taking advantage of our beautiful bike paths.
Since summer has begun and many more young people will be out enjoying the freedom of cycling as well, CAA Saskatchewan is offering some bike safety tips for cyclists.
"Yield to pedestrians, stop at stop signs, and travel with the flow of traffic," said Christine Niemczyk, Director of Communications for CAA Saskatchewan.
"We do want to emphasize as well, if you are riding a bike, then you are considered by law to be the same sort of understanding as a vehicle on the road," she said. "If you get off your bike, and walk alongside your bike, then you are considered a pedestrian," she explained.
Niemczyk added that, "the rule of thumb is always follow the rules of the road when riding on city streets and rural roads, plan your ride and avoid dangerous routes."
