Bicycle Safety

In an average year in Utah, 6 bicyclists are killed and nearly 850 are involved in crashes with motor vehicles.  Head injury is the leading cause of death in bicycle/motor vehicle-related crashes. Wearing a helmet is one of the best ways to lower your risk of head injury and death in a bicycle crash. We provide helmets at a reduced cost to community members, and assist with helmet fitting to ensure a correct fit. We provide bike rodeos which teach safety skills, such as riding on roads, hand signals and helmet use. Educational materials are available for community members as well.
