You dont know what you might discover or friends you might meet.
Wear a Helmet.
The best thing you can do to protect your noggin is put on your head protector.
STEP 1: Size
Measure your head for approximate size. Try the helmet on to ensure it fits snugly. While it is sitting flat on top of your head, make sure the helmet doesn’t rock side to side. Sizing pads come with new helmets; use the pads to securely fit to your head.
STEP 2: Position
The helmet should sit level on your head and low on your forehead—one or two finger-widths above your eyebrow.
STEP 3: Buckles
Center the left buckle under the chin. On most helmets, the straps can be pulled from the back of the helmet to lengthen or shorten the chin straps. This task is easier if you take the helmet off to make these adjustments.
STEP 4: Side Straps
Adjust the slider on both straps to form a “V” shape under, and slightly in front of, the ears. Lock the slider if possible.
STEP 5: Chin Strap
Buckle your chin strap. Tighten the strap until it is snug, so that no more than one or two fingers fit under the strap.
STEP 6: Final Fitting
Does your helmet fit right? Open your mouth wide…big yawn! The helmet should pull down on the head. If not, refer back to step 5 and tighten the chin strap.
Pre ride Bike check
Better check your bike before you ride.
Check your tyres for proper inflation and signs of damage
Check your brake pads and squeeze the brakes to stop the bike
Squeaky chains and gears need oil .

Slow down and enjoy the ride.
