Protective gear is a must with plenty of reflective gear on the cycle. Follow traffic rules, stay calm & hope that you don’t encounter any nuisance persons on the way.

I always use reflective clothing and lights on my bike. I also stick to the bike lanes whenever possible. Follow all traffic laws too and watch out for cars/trucks.

See and be seen. Be courteous. Obey the "Rules of the Road". Remember that bicyclists have all of the rights AND responsibilities of motorists.

Stay alert and always be visible. I wear reflective gear and use lights at night. I even have a lunchbox that is reflective.

Lo primero a considerar es ser prudente ,usar casco y la ropa adecuada siguen los accesorios en este caso una mochila reflectante,para ser visto por las demas personas

I agree with many of he others that reflectors are a must for bike safety. Having flashing lights both on the bike and the rider is also good. I wear an armband with an LED blinking light, it is easy to take on and off and I can use it when biking, hiking, or on a walk.
