What should you teach your children about bicycle safety?

When your children express their excitement and enthusiasm to ride their bicycle to school or around your neighborhood in Tennessee, it is a prime opportunity to give them some pointers on how to stay safe especially around cars. When you teach them about bicycle safety and positively encourage responsible behavior, you and your children will be more confident in their ability to make wise decisions that will serve to protect them. 

If your child wears a helmet, that is an excellent first step. However, it is imperative that you make sure that their helmet is properly fitted to their head and that they understand how to secure it the right way. According to KidsHealth, your child's helmet should cover his or her forehead and be sitting level on his or her head. If you have girls, remind them to wear appropriate hairstyles that will allow their helmet to fit the right way. The straps should be tightened and you may consider having your child help you add reflective stickers to increase visibility. Teach your child how to take proper care of his or her helmet to make it last a long time. 

Teach your children about the importance of following the rules of the road and staying on a designated sidewalk or bike path at all times. Show them how to use the crossing signals at an intersection and teach them the importance of making sure they are seen before beginning to cross a road. You can also show them necessary maintenance procedures such as checking the air pressure in the tires, making sure the seat is on tightly and adding oil to the chain to help them keep their bike safe and functioning optimally.
