Lesson 2: Bike Maintenance

Bike maintenance is an important part of bike safety training.

Maintaining your bike will make it safe to ride. You'll be sure that no screws will fall out when you take it for a ride.

Maintenance will save you a fortune on expensive repairs. You'll spot issues on the bike if you maintain it regularly.

With regular maintenance, your bike will feel new even if you use it every day. Your ride will be smoother and more comfortable.

Which of the following is not a way to maintain your bike?

Which of the following should you have in your bike cleaning kit? The answers here are the clean rags and bike lubricant.

Bike maintenance also includes bike repair. As a cyclist, you should know how to make quick repairs.

Reattach a slipped chain using your fingers. Slip the links in the bike chain into the spokes on the gears.

Tighten loose nuts and bolts using a multi-tool. Be careful not to overtighten, to avoid loose thread bolts.

Rewrap your drop handlebars with tape to secure the connections of the brakes.

Pump up your tires when they feel soft. The normal tire pressure for a bike may range from 80 to 130 psi. Use a tire gauge to check.

Changing a flat tire takes work. Follow the steps below to get this done more simply. Remove the wheel from the bike frame. Separate the inner tubing from the tire. Look for the cause of the flat and remove it. It could be something sharp you ran over. Patch the tube with adhesives or replace it if you have an extra one. Re-attach the wheel to the bike.

Lesson 3: The Risks of Riding a Bike

In this lesson, the risks of riding a bike and how to avoid these risks are discussed.

Lesson 3: The Risks of Riding a Bike

Awareness for risks can help keep you safe. However, people often have misconceptions about these risks.

Some may believe that biking increases the chances of getting infected by the COVID virus. This isn't true. As long as social distancing is observed, you're safe.

It is safer to ride a bike instead of a car or public transport. Biking lessens your risk of coming in contact with people who carry the virus.

Some may also point out that riding a bike is bad for your health. Biking will expose you to air pollution and subject you to second hand smoke.

Your exposure to second hand smoke can be lessened by wearing a mask. The health benefits of riding a bike still outweighs this risk.

Roads can be very dangerous for cyclists. Some examples of dangers on the road are given here.

T-junctions These are road intersections that originate from a single road, then branches out into two roads going left and right.

Roundabouts Roundabouts are intersections which go around a centre island.

Potholes These are holes or cracks in the asphalt or pavement.

Rain-soaked roads Roads after heavy rain are very difficult to drive over as they are very slippery.

Parked Vehicles Parked vehicles are dangerous to cyclists because of the threat of being hit by car doors. If you're in a car, avoid hitting cyclists with doors by practising the Dutch reach.

Overtaking Overtaking is abruptly moving from one lane to another to steer clear of heavy traffic.

Lesson 4: Rules of the Road

This lesson will explain the road rules and guidelines cyclists have to follow.

Bike Safety Course - Lesson Excerpt

Lesson 4: Rules of the Road

The five most important road rules you must follow are given here.

Always wear safety equipment You are required to wear a cycling helmet when you ride a bike. Other safety equipment you can use will be shown in this lesson.

Use hand signals for communication Learn and use hand signals to signify the direction or action you are about to do.

Obey traffic rules Follow traffic signs and observe the colours of the traffic light and react accordingly. As a cyclist, you have the same rights as any motorist on the road, so you also have the same responsibilities.

Which of these must be on your bike? Of the choices, the helmet and reflector are the ones you must have.

Right Turn To signal a right turn, you can extend your left arm sideways and bend your elbow **up **in a 90-degree angle with your palm facing forward. Alternatively, you can extend your right arm outwards.

Left Turn To signal a left turn, you can extend your left arm sideways with all your fingers extended out or pointing to the left.

Stopping To warn others that you're going to stop, extend your left arm or right arm sideways and bend your elbow **down **in a 90-degree angle with your palm facing backwards.

Slowing down To gesture to other motorists that you are going to slow down, extend your left arm down to your side, then start moving your hand up and down while keeping it parallel to the ground.

Road Hazard To notify motorists of road hazards, you need to extend your index finger and point towards the hazard when you see it and pass by it. This could be done with either your left or right hand, depending on where the hazard is.
