HELMETS, it’s the law!

According to California law, anyone under age 18 must wear a bicycle helmet if using the following modes of transportation: bicycle, non-motorized scooter, skateboard, inline/roller skates or as a passenger. 

Not wearing a helmet can result in a traffic citation plus traffic class attendance with a parent.

Bike Theft remains one of the most frequent crimes in Palo Alto.

Although Greene’s Bike Cages are locked during school hours, they are not locked right away to allow for late arrivals, and they are unlocked early so kids don’t have to wait around. Therefore, bikes can be and are stolen.

If your child will ride a bike, etc. to school – please send them with a lock and encourage them to use the lock.


PLEASE REGISTER YOUR BIKE so if it is recovered after its theft, it may be returned to you.
