Before a child gets on their bike and rides off, it’s important to check their helmets.

Data shows wearing a bike helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by 85%.

When you’re wearing a helmet, it needs to be put on the right way.

A helmet should be level on the head. There should only be enough room for one finger between the buckle and the chin. It should not rock back and forth, or sideways.

Also, be sure the helmet covers your child’s forehead in case they fall forward. It should fit one inch above your eyebrows.

It’s also recommended parents wear helmets. It’s important for them to model safe behaviors so their child follows suit.
