Did you know?

As the weather warms, we thought we would share this info regarding bike riding. Enjoy & bike safely!

Did you know that it is illegal for anyone over the age of 12 to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk (unless that sidewalk has been marked as a bike route)? More specifically, Sheridan Road in Edgewater has its own law and penalties:

(a) The penalty for any person age 18 and older who rides a bicycle on the sidewalk adjacent to North Sheridan Road, between West Ardmore Avenue and West Sheridan Road (6400 north) shall be as follows: (1) the bicycle shall be temporarily disabled without permanent damage; and (2) the violator shall be subject to a fine of $50.00. (b) Following passage and approval, this section shall be in force and effect upon posting of signage notifying bicyclists of the penalty for violation of this section.
