Health Matters - Health Awareness


Bike Safety

Bike riding is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and to get exercise. It’s a fun and healthy way of getting around the neighbourhood, the city or even the country. But cycling has its risks. Most often, bike crashes cause nothing more than scrapes and bruises. But sometimes bones are broken and head injuries can occur. Every year in Manitoba, about 150 cyclists are hospitalized and several are killed. But many bike-related injuries can be prevented or protected against. There are many ways to be safer while cycling. The whole family can learn and practice good cycling habits.
