Safety: Bikes & Helmets

Bicycle helmets are incredibly effective at preventing severe head injuries while biking, dirt biking, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, etc. We strongly recommend that all children and adults wear a properly fitting helmet (with a tight chin strap) when doing any sport that puts them at risk for a head injury, even when they’re practicing in the driveway.

A very important component of getting kids to wear helmets is role-modeling, so please make sure everyone wears a helmet (not just the kids).
