QUESTION OF THE MONTH
No. There is no law that requires a rider, no matter what age, to wear a helmet in Nevada. Wearing a helmet is highly recommended for rider safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics estimate that nationally, 9 out of 10 bicyclists killed were not wearing their helmets and despite this stat only 20-25% of all bicyclists wear a helmet.

International Walk to School Day (Week)
Join us for International Walk to School Day!
Every year more than 50 million children from around the world participate in International Walk to School Day (IWSD). IWSD began in 1997 and gives children and parents an opportunity to try walking or biking to school. The goals of IWSD are to raise awareness of the importance of safer streets by reducing air pollution and promoting healthy habits from an early age. Regardless of whether your child(ren) regularly walk(s) or bike(s) to school, please consider joining them and others around the world by walking or biking with them to school on IWSD. In the United States IWSD is celebrated on the first Wednesday of the month.
This year we will be celebrating Walk to School Week on October 5-8, 2021, (Monday, October 4, is Staff Development Day).
Schools, please sign up today! Click the button below.
Walk & Roll 10/04 - 12/10
SRTS & Velofix
Safe Routes to School and Velofix conduct repair workshops at the schools to get students' bicycles ready to roll. At these workshops, students and parents learn basic bike repairs.
SRTS Bike Fleet
The trailer houses bicycles for students who do not have bicycles. These students can use these bikes to participate in the bike rodeos.
Promoting safe walking and bicycling is an ideal strategy to increase physical activity.
