What are the three things you should never do in combination with riding your bicycle?

Never ride your bicycle after drinking alcohol – riding after drinking alcohol increases your chances of an accident by 20 times. Distracted biking, caused by texting or talking on your cell phone while cycling is also a very bad idea. Finally, your hearing is extremely important while cycling, particularly in traffic. For that reason, you should avoid cycling while listening to your iPod or other electronic device.

Take the proper safety precautions and enjoy cycling for commuting, recreation and exercise.
