Biking To School
Cycling to school is the fun and healthy way to go!
A Simple Solution
To safeguard their bike, they should also carry a good lock (we recommend U-locks) and know how to use it. They should have money or a cell phone for calling home, or an alternative plan should it rain or should something necessitate a change of plans. You can reduce the chances of having a flat tire by ensuring that they're riding on reliable tires with good tread. They can carry a spare tube, tire levers and pump if they know how to repair the flat. Or we can help reduce the chances of flats even more with puncture-resistant tubes and sealants. If you have questions about any of these things or need a bike-safety check, just ask and we'll help. We love bikes, cycling and want your kids to be safe.
Find A Safe Route
Intersections often create hazards on even the safest routes. Scout these out in person to determine the safest approach. Often, it's best to walk in the crosswalk using the button to change the light. For left turns, rather than risking crossing the through lane, they can use the crosswalk to reach the other side of the road and proceed straight through when the light changes.
