Bike safety

Bike safety starts before you even get on the bicycle.

Summer’s in full swing. I love to see neighborhood kids out playing. We don’t see that enough these days. I want kids to have fun outdoors for fresh air and exercise. Bike safety should be taught early on and encouraged every time people young and old are on bikes.

Twice already this summer kids have told me about friends who had ugly accidents due to wearing flip flops or sandals on a bike. My patients hear the message to cover their heads with a helmet and feet with proper shoes before bikes and scooters. These kids listened but not their friends.

My favorite bike safety tips are in this easy to read and share infographic.

Bicycle safety is important. Start even before the ride by making sure the bike is in good shape and the right fit and that the rider is prepared. @pediatricskc
