Welcome to the go-to resource for all Boca Raton cyclists! Bill Bone Bike Law was created to provide legal representation to those traveling on two wheels. Even more than that, however, the firm exists to raise awareness about bike safety in an effort to improve the cycling community in Boca Raton. As longtime cycling advocates and trial lawyers, the staff of Bill Bone Bike Law works diligently in their effort to make Boca Raton a safer place to ride.

Most cyclists would agree that without proper planning, getting on a bike for a ride can be incredibly dangerous. From determining routes where bike lanes are always present to finding parks and scenic paths to ride on, cyclists typically do their homework prior to strapping on a helmet. In order to makes this research as convenient as possible, Bill Bone Bike Law has created this resource center for all Boca Raton cyclists. Please be sure to regularly check this page for continual updates on these important Boca Raton cycling factors:
