Keeping Kids Safe on Bikes
The first step in keeping your kid(s) safe on a bike is making sure their bike fits them. Your child should be able to touch the ground when standing over the top tube of the bike and must be able to comfortably reach the bars and brakes.
Helmets, a bell, lights/reflectors also are essential to keep your kid safe while they ride. Body armour and additional bike safety features (like chain guards) can also limit the risk of injury.
Once you have the right-sized bike and the safe-riding essentials, it's your turn! You must teach your child to ride safely. Need some help teaching your kid to ride a bike? Check out the guide created by one of our bike manufacturers, Liv Cycling:
