With some warm weather this last week, the bikes are out! Biking is fantastic for cardiovascular and
muscular health, is an environmentally friendly way to travel, and is a great way to get outside and keep active! However, biking has many safety risks that need to be discussed before allowing kids (or yourself) to hit the road. Most importantly, always wear a helmet. The following from kidshealth.org discusses the importance of helmets, and other bike safety tips that every child and adult should know. It also has a great jingle “Wear a Helmet” that will get kids singing and remembering their helmet every time!
