Cycling is a fun and healthy way for your child to get around, but there are dangers to be aware of. By setting a good example and making sure your child is trained and has the right clothing and equipment, you can help keep them safe.
On average half of the road injuries received by cyclists are to the face and the head. Make sure your child always wears a correctly-fitted helmet to protect against head injuries should they fall.
First of all, you need to wear bicycle helmets correctly for children and teach them to recognize traffic signs, don't shout and distract them, encourage them to notice and discuss what they see around them on the road and encourage them to make their own decisions-they shouldn't blindly follow what others are doing without making their own checks first.
You also need to help them work out the safest routes for the journeys they make, make sure that other road users must be able to see the cyclists. At night, children should be dressed in reflective clothes so that others can notice the child's presence at the first moment.
The most important thing is to teach by words and deeds. Parents are the best teachers for their children. As parents, they should also abide by the traffic rules at any time in life, set an example and set an example for their children.
