Bicycle Safety for All

Bicycle Safety is an important issue for everyone.  Below are some safe riding tips that all bike riders can follow.

Additionally, a reminder that anyone under the age of 16 is required to wear a helmet in Massachusetts.  Failure to do so can result in seizure of their bike for up to 15 days.  That being said, it is a good idea for every rider to wear a helmet because it can save your life.  Based on statistics from 2009 by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 91% of the people killed in bicycle accidents were not wearing helmets.
