Bike Riding Tips for families
- Make sure your child has a bike appropriate for their size. Under the age of six, consider a bike trailer, an attachable seat on your bike, or small bike with training wheels. Around the age of 6-8 you can consider a “real” bike.
- Every rider must always wear a properly fitted helmet that is in good condition.
- Dress for the weather in layers. Especially avoid loose hair, garments, or straps that can catch on the bicycle or passing objects.
- Stay visible on every ride by wearing high visibility (yellow or orange) clothing and reflectors or tape on the bike.
- Be alert when riding; watch both the terrain and your surroundings. Use caution around other bikes and vehicles, and while on sidewalks with pedestrians.
- Before the ride, check each bike for tire pressure and working breaks–children can be taught to check their own bike.
- Before each ride, remind your child about the rules of the road, hand signals, riding safely, and staying together.
- Pack snacks and water in a backpack or pannier to ensure everyone stays hydrated and energized.
- On family rides, young children need to stay with you until they are ready to ride off by themselves–which they will think they are ready to do long before you.
