Hand Signals

Communication is key to safely sharing the roads. As bicyclists we communicate our turning or stopping intentions with hand signals. It helps us all know where each other is going so we can respond legally and safely.

Navigating Intersections

Learning how to properly travel through the intersections on a bike is important for safety and efficiency. Brian Potwin and friends of Commute Options shows how to legally and safely make a right turn, go straight or make a left hand turn. Start on low traffic intersections to build skills and confidence before venturing out to more highly travelled roads.

Corvallis School District SRTS programs offers the Neighborhood Navigators Pedestrian Safety program in grade 2. Below is a snapshot of the five lesson program.

Bike Parking Assessment Tool

Materials

Back to school means more children walking and biking on our roads. It’s exciting and fun, but there’s one thing that all families should add to their lists as they prepare for back to school – the trip to school.

Now is the perfect time to plan for and practice getting to and from school safely. Whether your children walk, bike, ride the bus, or ride in a car, a little planning and preparation can go a long way towards keeping children safe. Practice and discuss these safety tips as a family and be a great example by always practicing how to travel safely with your child.

Check your route to school, and practise. When possible, choose streets with low traffic volumes, slow speeds, few intersections, good bicycle lanes and good sidewalks with no roadway construction.
