Gates will open at 3pm, and there will be gourmet food truck, activities for the whole family, live music by the Derek Bordeaux Group, vendors and fireworks at night. Plus, the TorkLaw team will be there giving away free bike helmets to kids who visit the TorkLaw booth with their parents and take the Put a Lid On It Pledge. Helmets will be provided until we run out of inventory.

Promoting Bicycle Safety in California
School is out and the sun is shining, which means bicycle season is upon us in full-force. Moms, Dads and kids are pulling their bicycles out of storage and hitting the pavement. They are exploring new areas, riding their favorite trails, cruising the neighborhood, checking out the beach and just generally enjoying the beautiful weather that California offers.
With more riders sharing the road with cars, comes an increased possibility of an accident involving a cyclist occuring. TorkLaw reminds you to ride safe this summer, and take precautionary measures to make your ride as safe as possible.
Bicycle Safety Tips
Basic bicycle safety is not difficult, but requires riders to do the right things every time they ride. Here are some bicycle safety basics:
- Always wear a helmet
- Ride facing oncoming traffic
- Use a light, reflectors and reflective clothing when riding in the dark.
- Walk your bike in crosswalks and when crossing roads.
The list above should come as no surprise, but here is a list of things most cyclists don’t know that are perfectly legal.
