The Aurora Police Department wants you to have fun riding your bike and be safe too.

Wearing a bike helmet is the most important thing you can do to protect your brain and your life when riding a bicycle. Children between the ages of 5 and 14 have the highest rate of injury of all bicycle riders. More then 500,000 children a year go to the hospital emergency rooms of doctors’ offices due to bike injuries. 

Here are some safety tips:
