Keeping Tots Riding Safely May 15 2015, 0 Comments
Glide Bikes, Striders, Early Riders and the like are quite an exciting addition to the biking family. Its so cool for the tandems to have child to call their own ;)
While its fun to put your tinies on a teensy bike, remember safety. Helmets need to be worn correctly--and given our time in the bike rodeo circuit--this is not common!
Check the y-strap to make sure it y's right below your child's earlobe.
Make sure the chin strap is snug. Two fingers between the chin and strap is all the play you should have.
Adjust the helmet so that it is two fingers above your child's eyebrows (this is one of the most common errors among all riders).
Then, when they're ready to hit the road for a family outing, make sure you put Blox on their helmet straps. This really helps them to be able to hear you AND approaching traffic!
