This past weekend, my fiancé’s niece received her first bike with training wheels! A pretty purple bike with training wheels and a neat bell. It made me think about when I rode my first bike called Starlight (a pink bike with a white basket and streamers)! Bicycling is safer now than ever before, thanks to helmet awareness and bicycle-safety classes! Still, each year in the United States, more than 200 kids under the age of 15 die from injuries involving bicycles, and an additional 360,000 are treated for serious injury in hospital emergency rooms, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Kids ages 5 to 15 account for more than 20 percent of bicycle deaths, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Bike crashes send more kids to the emergency room than any other sport. Bike safety helps kids make better decisions and reduce their risks of death or injury.
Here are some fun ways to teach bike safety to kids!
