- Wear a helmet. Helmets aren’t required in Connecticut, but wearing a helmet is one of the best ways to limit your chances of serious injury or death.
- Keep your speed down. While most off-road trails do not have posted speed limits, riding at a reasonable speed will give you the best chance at avoiding a serious accident.
