Bike Safety

 

 Capturebike safety

Double check to see if your child’s bike and helmet are the right size. They should be able to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground. A bike that is too big or too small becomes a safety hazard. Your child’s bike should be equipped with a bell and reflectors.  

Ensure safety amongst young children by setting these rules:

  • No playing on the road;
  • No riding on busy streets;
  • No riding at night;
  • Stop for all stop signs and traffic lights;
  • Ride on the right with traffic.

Remember that a majority of bicycle injuries do not involve motor vehicles and occur in familiar surroundings.
