Tips for being a safe cyclist
Watch for car doors opening as you bike past, and be careful if you are in a driver's blind spot.
Follow the direction of traffic — don’t surprise oncoming drivers and pedestrians.
Right of Way
Sidewalks are for pedestrians — if you must ride, ride slowly and watch for turning vehicles at corners and driveways.
Never text, talk on the phone, or wear headphones while bicycling.
Signal to Others
Use correct hand signals to let drivers and other bicyclists know where you’re going.
Stop at red lights and stop signs — then look before you go.
Always wear a helmet when riding. The law requires it if you're under 18.
Use lights at night and a bell when passing pedestrians or other cyclists.

santa ana deserves our safety
"I love Santa Ana; it’s the most passionate community and could become the golden city of transportation in Orange County. You can’t teach passion. It’s part of Santa Ana’s soul."
"There is this authenticity about the Santa Ana community, it has a very vibrant culture. You feel that when you walk through the neighborhoods, and there are a lot of families that rely on walking and biking because that is their only option. This dynamic creates a strong sense of community that you don’t get in other places."
"I think we can be a great leader.The biggest potential is in the city already. The staff and residents can do a lot. The city should be here for the residents and support them by giving safe ways to get to work and get to school and to have fun."
