Summer Safety Tips - Bicycle Safety
Provided by Success By 6
  • Do not push your child to ride a 2-wheeled bike until he or she is ready, at about age 5 or 6. (Consider the child's coordination and desire to learn)
  • Stick with foot brakes until your child is older and more experienced for hand brakes.
  • Take your child with you when you shop for the bike, so that he or she can try it out.
  • Buy a bike that is the right size, not one your child has to "grow into." Oversized bikes are especially dangerous.
  • Your child needs to wear a helmet, no matter how short or how close to home.  Many accidents happen in driveways, on sidewalks, and on bike paths, not just on streets.
  • Children learn best by observing you, so always wear a helmet when you ride.
  • A helmet protects your child from serious injury and should always be worn.  And remember, wearing a helmet at all times helps children develop the helmet habit.
  • When purchasing a helmet, look for a label/sticker that says the helmet meets the CPSC safety standard.
  • A helmet should be worn so that it is level on the head, not tipped forward or backwards. The strapped should be securely fastened, and you should not be able to move the helmet in any direction.
