The Town Code requires children 14 and under to wear a helmet. Adults should always wear a helmet for safety and to set a good example for children.

Lock bikes into the school racks using the REAR WHEEL. This prevents damage to the front wheel if the bike falls.

Whether walking or biking, always make eye contact with ALL motorists at an intersection before crossing at a crosswalk.

If a helmet is hit in a fall or accident - whether it looks damaged or not - it needs to be inspected and possibly replaced. The local bike shops, Bikes at Vienna and Spokes, can assist you.

Teach your child to run the lock through the frame not just the wheel - nice bikes are being locked to our racks through just the front quick-release wheel or over the handlebars.
