What are the community regulations regarding the use of a bike helmet?
It is required for bike riders of ALL AGES to wear a helmet on the USCG Training Center. Although the city of Cape May does not have strict requirements for helmet use, we highly recommend it due to hazardous drivers not from the local area.

A Reservation Request Form must be filled out and submitted to the MWR Office. Additionally, if there will be alcohol at the event, an Alcohol Request Form must be submitted as well. Please refer to the MWR Facilities page for forms.
