Tip of the Month:

Bicycle Safety:

Bike riding is a lot of fun but accidents happen. Every year about 300,000 kids go to the emergency room because of bike injuries. The most serious of these are head injuries. A head injury can mean a brain injury. That is why it is so important to wear a helmet when you ride your bike.

The helmet provides some protection for your head and brain in case you fall down. Always wear your helmet even if you are only going for a short ride. Your helmet needs to fit you properly and you should not wear a hat under it. You need to wear your helmet properly. It should be worn level to protect your forehead. Do not tip it back so that your forehead is showing. The straps should always be fastened. Take care of your bike helmet and don’t throw it around. If you do fall down while wearing your helmet and put it to the test you need to replace it with a new one. They don’t work as well after they have been in a major crash.

Wearing bright clothes and putting reflectors on your bike help you stay safe by making sure others can see you. You will want to make sure that nothing can get caught in your bike chain or wheel spokes. Wear sneakers when riding to help your feet grip the pedals. Never ride barefoot! Avoid wearing headphones or ear-buds as the music can distract you and prevent you from hearing traffic noise such as car horns telling you to get out of the way.
