5 Tips on Bike Safety

July 17, 2017

One of the topics our K-Prep preschoolers are exploring in the month of July is bike safety! Safekids.org provides this great list of tips to keep you and your family safe while enjoying a bike ride:

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet. It is the best way to prevent head injuries and death.
  2. Ride on the sidewalk when you can. If not, ride in the same direction as traffic as far on the right-hand side as possible.  
  3. Use hand signals and follow the rules of the road. Be predictable by making sure you ride in a straight line and don’t swerve between cars.    
  4. Wear bright colors and use lights, especially when riding at night and in the morning. Reflectors on your clothes and bike will help you be seen.
  5. Ride with your children. Stick together until you are comfortable that your kids are ready to ride on their own. 

Riding bikes with your family is a great way to exercise and spend time together. Use these tips to stay safe and have fun this summer!
