Bike Safety

At Quinnipiac, our commitment to a safe and thriving campus extends to every aspect of student life, especially transportation. Before riding your bicycle on campus, check for the ABCs of bike safety - Air, Brakes and Chains.

  • A: Regularly inspect the air pressure and confirm that it meets the recommended level. Maintaining the correct tire pressure ensures a more comfortable driving experience and lowers the likelihood of a flat tire.
  • B: Inspect both the front and rear brakes to verify their proper operation. If the bicycle is equipped with hand brakes, rotate one wheel and engage the levers to confirm that the wheel comes to a halt.
  • C: Examine your bike chains for signs of rust and any damage. If your bicycle is equipped with gears, verify that the gear levers and derailleurs effectively shift the chain between gears.
