Bicycle Safety

Bicycle Helmet Safety Checklist

Last Sunday, we went on a family shopping trip to buy my son a new bike with training wheels. Of course he HAD to have the Spiderman bike, and I could hardly get him off the demo long enough to check out – but I loved seeing his excitement!

Riding bikes is a great activity that we can do as a family while getting some exercise and enjoying the weather. I’m looking forward to many family bike rides in the park this summer. Before taking the new bike out for its first spin, I thought it would be a good time for me to review helmet safety with him, and I wanted to share this checklist with you all as well.
