Resources for Drivers and Cyclists in Salt Lake City

Welcome! The Salt Lake City Police Department recognizes and is committed to serving those members of our community who commute and recreate by bicycle. Whether you use two wheels for transportation or just plain fun, we hope you find the resources available here helpful.

Protect Yourself!
Riding a bicycle can be hazardous. Riding one without a helmet may cost you your life. The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective not only has resources that can help you or someone you know put a lid on your head, but also give you an opportunity to learn and improve your riding skills.
