People need to learn about bike safety because it’s the safest way to get around in the 21st century, according to a new report.
The Bicycle Safety Institute’s report, titled How to Ride a Bike in the Dark: The Truth About How Much You Need to Know About Bike Safety, is the latest in a series by the group, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
It’s based on a survey of more than 6,000 riders.
The study found that while nearly all people ride safely in the daytime, most of us do it with our heads down or facing away from traffic.
The best way to learn more about the topic is to do it yourself, the report states.
The report’s authors said a bike helmet that’s snug enough to fit inside the skull but doesn’t interfere with vision or make you feel dizzy are crucial to protecting cyclists and drivers.
The helmets also should have an integrated, full-face camera that can detect the speed of a cyclist’s bike and automatically stop a rider at a red light or intersection.
The Institute has also released a guide on how to ride safely.

The institute said in its report that most people ride to school or work.
The majority of people who ride have no idea what they’re doing, the group said.
And those who do have a helmet can be in trouble for not wearing one.
“Many people will assume that they are safer than other users when wearing a helmet, but a helmet is actually not a guarantee that the rider will be able to keep up with a slower moving vehicle,” the report said.
The survey of about 1,000 people also found that people who wear a helmet were more likely to wear a visor, have less head trauma and are less likely to be hit by a car than people who don’t.
The helmet study also found people who wore helmets were more often than people without them to wear the visor.
The people who were more than half as likely to use a helmet included those who said they usually wore them in the past or a recent trip, and those who did so more often in the day than in the night.
