All the signs are there. Summer is coming to an end. And as we begin to prepare for the Fall season, police are reminding those who choose to ride their bikes about the rules of the road.

Authorities took to the streets of Toronto on Monday to offer helpful tips to riders there. “You should increase your distance when following other vehicles or bicycles,” says Sergeant Jack West with the Toronto Police.

With less than a month left of summer, days are getting shorter and it's starting to get darker earlier. Because of this, West says your wardrobe for fall riding is crucial as well.

“You want to dress for it...You want to have some reflective clothing. You want to make sure you have some reflective tape on your bicycle, the lighting, so you can be seen.”
