Bicycle Safety Assemblies
How important is bicycle safety in your community?
Bicycle safety and helmet use is something to be serious about. During our bicycle safety assemblies we cover:
How to wear a safety helmet properly. Give students tips on how to check that a bicycle helmet is fitted properly.
Rules of the road. In our program, we try to explain the rules of the road in words the students can relate to.
Always stop at the end of the driveway. Many crashes between a car and bike happen when kids don’t stop at the end of a driveway.
Bicycle size is important – In our bicycle safety assemblies, we explain that riding the wrong size bike is like trying to play basketball in Shaquille O’Neal’s size 22 shoes-when you’ve got size 9 feet. You can do it, but it will be awkward and not a lot of fun.
Shopping for a bicycle is a lot like shopping for clothes, it’s best to go to the store and try it on. To figure out which size bike you need for yourself or your child, just look below:
Perfection on Wheels teams up other supporters of bicycle safety AAA, IEHP and other supporters on bicycle safety.
For 10 years Perfection on Wheels has been working closely with IEHP and The Rad Rider safety program. The safety program was developed to educate inner city children on bicycle safety, and provide each participant with a free helmet. Through this program we have delivered over 120,000 bicycle safety helmets to inner city kids.
