Bicycle and Helmet Safety

 

Biking is a fun and healthy activity for the whole family. Biking is a good form of transportation that is good for your body, and the planet. Under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act (HTA), a bicycle is a vehicle (not a toy) that has one, two or three wheels, has steering handlebars and pedals and does not have a motor. Bike helmets can prevent up to 88% of brain injuries when properly fitted and used correctly.
