riding_a_bicycle_311140In an effort to reduce incidence and severity of bike accidents at Cape Cod National Seashore, the Bicycle Safety Committee will host its fifth annual “Bicycle Safety at the Seashore” event on Thursday, July 24, from 9 to 12 noon, at Province Lands Visitor Center, Provincetown. Open to the public, this event will feature helmet fittings, fun activities for kids, bicycle safety checks, and educational displays. Prizes for participation, such as helmets, bike accessories, raffles, and coupons may be available while supplies last. Educational topics will include how to fit a helmet properly, preparing for a ride with an ABC bicycle quick check, the consequences of a bicycle crash, as well as other interesting facts about bicycle safety at the seashore. Join us for this fun-filled event and for your chance to walk away with information that will keep you and your family safe.

Regional Bike Lights Update: 1200 bike lights are expected to be delivered by August 1 due to a shipping delay. Notice of arrival will be posted and communicated to all Police Departments on Cape Cod. Thank you for your support of this important initiative!
The Cape Cod National Seashore’s Bicycle Safety Committee intends this event to be one of many future educational opportunities focused on promoting awareness about bicycle safety in the park. Participation and support is provided by Arnold’s Bike Shop, P-town Bikes, and Ben and Jerry’s.
Directions to the Province Lands Visitor Center: Take Route 6 to the Race Point Road exit in Provincetown. Turn right onto Race Point Road. The Province Lands Visitors Center will be on the right.
