Safety Tips

Always wear a helmet. It’s not only important to protect your child, it’s the law for riders 18 and under.

Be as visible as possible. Wear bright clothing and install reflectors and lights on your bike.

Stay off the roads. Ride only in bike lanes or along marked bike routes.

For children up to age 13, it’s OK to ride on the sidewalk.
