Do you have to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle in San Francisco?

If the bicyclist is under 18 years of age, then a helmet is required to ride. Violation of this law can result in a $25 fine. And though it is not required for adults, we highly recommend wearing a helmet to prevent unplanned injury.
