Bike riding is a great way to get exercise and fresh air, and share time as a family. It’s a lot of fun, but accidents can happen. Every year, about 300,000 kids go to the emergency room because of bike injuries, and at least 10,000 kids have injuries that require a few days in the hospital. Some of these injuries are life-threatening. Before the family rushes out and starts pedaling, it’s important to teach your kids bike safety rules.
