It is National Bike Month! For many bicyclists, April’s warm weather has prompted them to dust off their bikes and seek a bike tune-up at their local bike shop. While we are all eager to soak up the sunlight and get some fresh air, bikers should remember safety comes first.
The Centers for Disease Control has reported that less than half of bicyclists wear helmets. Bike wrecks have been known to lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Whether you are commuting to work, riding with your family, or exercising, simply wearing a helmet can reduce your chance of death in the event a collision occurs.
