While hiking:
Decide on a place to go, how to get there, how to get home, the number of people going, and the supplies needed.

Wear comfortable shoes

Walk on the left side of the highway facing approaching vehicles in a single file.

Stay with the crowd and obey the instructions of the leader. Never stray into strange swamps, woods or fields.

Stay away from the banks of swiftly moving water and places where there might be quicksand.

Watch out for snakes, deadly insects, and poisonous plants.

Stay away from the highway when resting.

Return before dark and be sure you know how to get back home.

While biking:
Be sure the seat of the bike is of the right height and is securely fastened.

Use the warning signal or bell to tell others of your approach.

Don't carry a passenger on the back of your bicycle. This overloads your bike and you may fall over easily.

Never drive too fast or you may knock down another child or bump into an adult.

Keep to the right and turn at corners slowly.

Respect the rights of pedestrians, especially if riding on the sidewalk is permitted.

Don’t hook your bicycle onto another bike.

Obey traffic lights, signs, and road markings.

Stop at crossroads and railroad tracks.

Use a good reflector behind your bicycle so that it can be seen well at night.
