Bicycle Safety Information

Providing Bicycle Safety Information is one role of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  We periodically review a document released by this national agency dated in 2013 that contains very helpful bicycle safety information.  We encourage all American River Bike Trail users to review this information and share the information with their children, if applicable.

Some great bicycle safety information!
