No matter how careful you are, if you ride long enough, you will be involved in a bicycle crash. Injuries can range from scraped hands and knees to severe injuries like fractures, traumatic brain injury, and soft tissue injuries. Minor scrapes and bruises may do little more than ruin your day.

There are a number of ways you can reduce your risk of being involved in an Alaska bike crash. Be sure your bike has a headlight that can be seen from 500 feet away. By law, you are required to use this headlight under low light conditions. However we advise that you use the light all the time in order to increase your visibility. Adhere reflectors to the rear and sides of your bike, as well. Being seen is the most important factor when it comes to minimizing your risk of being involved in a crash.
In some areas of Alaska, youth under the age of 16 or 18 (depending on the area) are required to wear an approved bicycle helmet. We recommend all cyclists use a helmet. Traumatic brain injury occurs all too frequently, and cyclists are especially vulnerable. Although the brain can heal to a certain extent, many of these brain injuries create life-long challenges. Do not take unnecessary chances.
