Students must wear helmets, it's the law!
根据加州法律, anyone under age 18 must wear a bicycle helmet if using the following modes of transportation: bicycle, 非机动车踏板车, 滑板, inline/roller skates or as a passenger. Not wearing a helmet can result in a traffic citation + traffic class attendance with a parent.

Unfortunately, bike thefts do occur on campus. U-locks are the recommended bike locks; cable locks are easy to cut. Locking the front wheel and frame is helpful. Wheel locks (such as WheelNutz or other wheel locking skewers) will prevent thieves from being able to remove a front or back tire.
The bike cage is never locked - bicyclists should lock their bikes. For after school activities, we recommend moving your bike to where there are people. Bike registration instructions with QR reader bike stickers are available in the Main Office in the multi-shelf unit in front of the window.
