A great way to exercise and enjoy the beauty of nature is to ride your bike or scooter along one of the many paved paths in city parks. However, it’s important to keep in mind your own safety and the safety of others when sharing park paths.
Use Your Head, Wear a HelmetIn the City of Creve Coeur, every person riding on a bicycle or motorized bicycle or using in-line skates, roller skates, a skateboard, a scooter, or a similar wheeled device on a public roadway, public bicycle path or other public rights-of-way shall wear a bicycle helmet, as per City Ordinance 370.130.
Helmets are the number one way to protect against traumatic head injury during a bicycling or scooter accident. Helmets are designed to absorb the force of a fall, acting as a protective barrier between the ground and your skull. Studies have repeatedly shown that, of those who experience a cycling accident, individuals who wore a helmet typically had less severe injuries and shorter hospital stays than those who did not wear a helmet.
