- Many school principals have a supply of rear and front lights from the Medford Bicycle Advisory Commission (MBAC); parents or students can talk to them to get one of these for free
- MBAC also has some free helmets that are available. State law now states that children under 16 must wear a helmet, and all cyclists must have a rear and front light after dusk.
