The League of American Bicyclists released a series of online educational videos earlier this month as part of its Smart Cycling program. bike trail

The 19 videos use clear, easy-to-follow narration to instruct viewers on a wide range of bicycle safety topics. For beginning cyclists, there are lessons on how to choose the right bike and determine proper helmet fit. Other videos tackle more dicey subjects such as navigating in heavy traffic and riding on sidewalks.

Despite bicycling’s recent surge in popularity, the road remains a dangerous place for cyclists. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 677 cycling deaths and an additional 48,000 injuries in 2011. The League hopes to increase bicycle safety through its Smart Cycling program.

Visit the League of American Bicyclists website to view the videos.
