Teaching Kids to Ride
Over the weekend, I had a great opportunity to work with some middle school aged kids and their parents. The kids wanted to ride their bikes to middle school and we spent a couple hours talking and practicing some road safety skills.
I had a great time seeing these young people who are the next generation of bike transportation advocates! In this video, I go over 4 critical areas to teach young bike riders when they’re learning to interact with traffic. And I even throw in one extra area that I noticed when watching the kids interact.
The 4 major accident areas for young riders are
1. entering traffic from a driveway without looking
2. riding on the left side of the street
3. veering in front of oncoming traffic when going left, and
4. failing to stop at a stop sign.
