Don’t be like this biker (shown above) and chat on the phone while riding your bike. Everyone knows that you shouldn’t text while driving, and many states have a hands-free rule for talking on your cell phone as well.  It’s distracting, some say as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.  The same is true of using your phone while biking.  Human beings are terrible multi-taskers, as much as we might like to believe (and technology tries to assist us) otherwise.

Here are 3 tips to help you safely use and tote your smartphone with you on your cell two-wheeled trip:

1. Pull over-If you receive a call or text while riding your bike, pull over safety to the sidewalk or curb. Be safe and never chat or text while cycling.

2. Mount-Mounting your phone with one of these fun gadgets can make it quick and easy to reach your phone when parked. Also, these are great for GPS maps and music too.

3. Wait-Mute your cell phone on your bike ride. Use this time to clear your head and enjoy the ride. That important call or text can wait until you arrive at your destination.

    Great advice. In Toronto I’m seeing more and more cyclists riding while talking or even texting on their cells. It only takes a split second for something to go wrong. Pull over for a minute and enjoy the rest of your ride safely.
