The days are longer and the sun is starting to shine again. Spring is in the air and your bicycle should be hitting the sidewalks, trails, or wherever else you enjoy riding.

It is important to remember that bicycle riding is just as dangerous as motorcycle riding. Your bike may not have an engine, but the threat of getting hurt is still there. Remember to protect your head by wearing a helmet. Tuck those shoe laces in so they do not get caught in the spokes of your tires. Get a grip on those handlebars and ride comfortably with Olympia 407 Fingerless Gel Gloves. Keep in mind too drink plenty of water to remain hydrated, especially on longer bike rides and always let a friend know where you are headed.

Follow these tips for an easy, happy riding season.
