Bike and Helmet Safety

  • While inflating tires and checking the brakes are important to bike safety – a helmet is ESSENTIAL. Keep your kids safe and insist they wear their helmet every time they get on their bike.
  • Make sure the helmet fits and your kids know how to put it on correctly. The helmet should sit on the top of the head in a level position, and should not rock forward and backward or side to side.
  • Make sure the bike is the right size for the child. There should be about 1-inch of clearance between the bike frame and the child’s groin when the child’s feet are flat on the ground.
  • Remember, bike helmets are for biking. Kids should not wear bike helmets on the playground where straps can cause a hazard.
  • Model and teach proper bicyclist behavior. Ride on the right side of the road with traffic, not against it. Use appropriate hand signals, stopping at all stop signs and lights.
  • When in doubt, get help. The sales staff at any bicycle shop or outdoor recreation shop should be able to provide advice.
  • Check for the CPSC label. A helmet should be labeled to indicate that it meets the standards set by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
