  • Persons under 16 are required to use helmets
  • Kids under 12 must use the sidewalks along Deerfield Road or Waukegan Road or County Line (Lake-Cook) Road
  • In business districts bicycles may be ridden on sidewalks
  • Riders must ride single file
  • No cycling under the influence of drugs or alcohol
