Bicycle Safety Tips for You and Your Kids

Comments Off

The summer months are upon us and it is time to get out and ride your bicycle with the kids. Pass along the following safety tips to anyone riding a bicycle:

Bike Safety
Teach children the following bicycle and motorbike safety rules:
• Wear a bicycle or motorcycle helmet on every ride. Check to see if your helmet should have a safety certification.
• Ride so drivers and cyclists can see you.
• Look both ways for oncoming vehicles before turning or crossing a street. Go only when it is clear.
• Watch out for potholes, cracks, rocks, wet leaves, storm grates, railroad tracks or anything that could make you lose control of your bike.
• Make sure your bike fits your height, weight and age.
• Inflate tires properly.
• Check brakes before riding.
Bikers should ride one behind another and with the flow of traffic.

Enjoy yourself.
