Bike Ride Checklist ✓
Helmets: Safe and comfortable helmets are a priority. Check to see whether you and your children’s helmets fit properly. (We have a handy guide to help you if you aren’t sure about this.) ✓
Bikes: Ensure that all of your bikes are appropriate for your size and your saddles are in the proper position. This will help to make your cycle fun and blister-free. (Sustrans’ short guide on selecting the proper bike for your child is a great resource for newcomers!) ✓
There comes a time when you need to get or replace a helmet for your kids. Helmets are a really important form of protection. They need to be replaced when they’ve been outgrown or involved in a crash or sometimes a hard drop. And not just any helmet will do. Get the wrong size and your kids will be less than comfortable and they won’t be safe either. An ill-fitting helmet won’t provide the same level of protection as one which fits well but how do you know which helmet fits correctly?
