Young children should always ride with adult supervision

Just because the training wheels are off doesn't mean children are ready to ride alone.
  • Children need to be supervised when riding a bike. Children cannot be expected to act safely on a bike or exercise good judgment on a bike until about the age of 10.
  • Children should not ride in the road until they fully understand that their bicycle is a vehicle and they understand traffic rules and have demonstrated they can follow them.
  • The safest places for children to ride are: on the sidewalk, at the playground, in the park, 
not in the street.
  • Children learn from watching their parents. Set a good example by following safety precautions when riding with your child.
