What Every Young Michigan Bicyclist Must Know

This companion piece to our adult publication, What Every Michigan Bicyclist Must Know, was created to help young bicyclists understand how to ride their bicycles legally and safely in Michigan.

The publication is filled with colorful illustrations by artist Pavita K. based on original art by Ray Templin. The playful art is coupled with simple text developed by League staff and members to help make it fun and easy for children to learn about bicycle safety. This valuable resource was made possible solely through the generosity of LMB donors; we once again thank all of the individuals across the state that donated to make this project possible.
