                             2011 Bicycle Registration and Use
In order to promote bicycle safety and proper use of bicycle in camp, the following procedure will be in place
for the 2011 summer camp season.

   1. Any Scout or Adult bringing a bicycle to camp must complete the bicycle registration process.
   2. The cost is $3.00 per bicycle. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable. The total fee for bicycle
      registration will be assessed to the unit at the financial check out on Friday. Units are responsible for
      collecting the money from the individual Scout or adult.
   3. The person registering the bicycle must agree to abide by the rules listed on the registration form and
      complete the personal information listed at the bottom. Unit leaders will have to sign the registration
      form as well as the parent/guardian(s) for each Scout. The registration form must be completed before
      arriving at camp.
   4.    The unit leader will report to the Business Manager prior to arriving at camp how many persons are
        bringing bicycles to camp so that the proper number of licenses can be created.
   5. The site guide for the unit will collect the Unit’s Bicycle Registration form as well as each of the
      individual forms at the unit campsite at Check In. The site guide with the assistance of the Senior Patrol
      Leader will issue and affix the permits to the bicycles that are being registered. The person registering
      the bicycles will need to show their bicycle helmet as part of the registration process.
   6. The Scout or adult who registers the bicycle is responsible for its use while the bicycle in on camp
      property regardless of who is riding the bicycle.
   7. Beaumont Scout Reservation as well as the Greater Cleveland Council are not responsible for lost,
      stolen, damaged bicycles.
   8. Infractions of any of the rules listed will result in the following:
           a. First Infraction – the Scoutmaster will be notified and will be responsible for impounding that
              bicycle for one day.
           b. Second Infraction – the Scoutmaster will be notified and the camp will impound the bicycle in a
              secure location until check out on Saturday morning.
           c. Riding without a helmet will result in the immediate impounding of the bicycle by the camp for
              the remainder of the week.
                                                                         BEAUMONT SCOUT RESERVATION
                                                                                           Greater Cleveland Council,
                                                                                              Boy Scouts of America
                                2011 Bicycle Registration and Use
1. Helmets and Clothing
All cyclists must wear a properly sized and fitted helmet approved by either the Snell Memorial Foundation or the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards. The strap must be properly fitted and fastened.
2. Buddy-Up
The buddy system must be used.
3. Keep Right
Ride with the traffic flow, as far to the right as possible. Avoid curbs, storm drains, soft or loose gravel on shoulders, and
other hazards.
4. Be Smart
Obey all traffic laws, signs, signals, and street markings. Watch for changes in road conditions. Ride only one to a bike.
Do not ride after dark. No stunts—trick riding is only for professionals who use special equipment. Yield to motor
vehicles even if you think you have the right-of-way. Never hitch a ride on another vehicle. Keep your head and ears open
and do not wear headphones while riding. Leave more time and space when breaking on gravel.
5. Turns and Intersections
Look left, right, back, and ahead before turning. Stop and search all directions when turning. Signal all turns using
universal hand signals. Walk your bike through or across busy intersections.
6. Right Bike
Ride only a bike that fits you. Select a bike that permits you to put both feet on the ground while sitting on the seat. The
handgrips should be no higher than your shoulder or lower than your seat.
7. Discipline
All cyclists should know, understand, and follow the rules and procedures for safe biking.
8. Roadways Only
Bikes should only be ridden on the main and service roads through camp. Please walk your bike on trails, across the dam,
and into your site and program areas. Never ride your bike on the grass.


I agree to abide by the regulations listed above and understand that if I do not follow them I will lose my
privilege of riding my bicycle at the Beaumont Scout Reservation and that my bicycle will be impounded by
unit leader and/or the camp until the end of my stay at Beaumont.
I will be responsible for the bicycle during my stay at Beaumont.
I understand the Beaumont Scout Reservation as well as the Greater Cleveland Council are not responsible for
lost, stolen, damaged bicycles.
I understand the cost for registering a bicycle is $3.00.
