APRIL

 

Spring is here and so is a new bike season!  If you are riding a bicycle to school remember to walk your bike on school grounds.  Campus' and Belleview's driveways and parking lots are very crowded before and after school, so the safest place for a bicyclist is WALKING on the sidewalk.  Also, if you have difficulties fitting that helmet in to your locker don't leave it at home.  Students can store helmets in the nurse's clinic for the day.

Did you know that 52,000 people in the US are injured in bicycle accidents each year?  That number is decreasing annually, but we all need to do our part to make bike safety a priority.

Wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet.  Middle school kids grow fast.  If in doubt about how to fit a helmet seek advice at your local bike shop or sporting goods store.  Be sure the straps are fastened.  A helmet can't protect your head if it falls off.

Make sure your bicycle is in good working order.  Check the tires.  Check the brakes and shifting cables.  Be sure your bike fits you.  When you straddle the top bar you should be able to have both feet flat on the ground, and there should be 1 to 3 inches between you and the top bar.

See and be seen.  Most collisions with bicyclists occur at dusk.  Be sure to wear florescent or bright clothing at all times.  That yellow jersey isn't just for the Tour de France!  Know and follow the rules of the road.  Bike paths are the safest places for bicycles, but if you do ride on the road you must obey traffic laws.  Stop at intersections, always be on the lookout for cars.  Of course, wearing headphones on a bicycle is never safe.

Plan your ride and ride your plan.  Know the area where you are riding.  Let your parents know where you'll be and when you are expected to arrive.  Don't ever text and ride!

Have fun!  Bicycling is a great activity for fun and exercise.  See you on the trails. . . Mrs. Rojec.
