  • Walking


    If you can walk there, keep the car at home. Often under-appreciated, walking is one of the best exercises you can do for your health.

    There is never bad weather, there is only bad gear:

    Keep dry with a raincoat, umbrella, and boots, and keep warm with mittens, a hat, boots, and a good coat. Too warm? Bring a spare change of clothes, or wear an undershirt and wait to put on your dress shirt until you get to your location.

    Stay safe:

    • Look left, right, and left again
    • Make sure vehicles are stopping, don’t assume they will stop
    • Walk facing traffic (unlike bicycling), so you can see that the driver sees you
    • Don’t jay-walk
    • Wear reflective clothing, or purchase a reflector with a clip and attach to your backpack, purse, or jacket
    • Take the less busy road, and the one with sidewalks, whenever possible
  • Biking


    Short or long trips, biking is a great opportunity to get some exercise into your day and potentially get to your location quicker by avoiding traffic and stoplights by taking a trail.

    Stay safe:

    • Always wear a helmet, even for short trips. Like when you put on your seatbelt when driving a car, get in the habit of always putting your helmet on whenever you hop onto your bike.
    • Keep your bicycle maintained; inspect your bike often. Check the PSI in your tires, and always check for a flat before taking off.
    • Obey traffic laws and follow the direction of traffic (unlike walking). Drivers won’t expect you to come from the opposite way of traffic, they are looking for cars and will see you if they are already looking that way.
    • Wear bright clothing, reflectors, and lights when it is dark
    • Use the proper hand-signaling to tell cars and other bicyclists what you are doing. Vehicles have turn signals and brake lights for a reason, and you should be doing the same signaling.
  • Public transit
