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 or exercise good judgment on a bicycle until about the age of 10.
  • Children should not ride in the road until they fully understand that their bicycle is a vehicle. Children must understand traffic rules and demonstrate that they can follow them.
  • The safest places for children to ride:
    • On the sidewalk
    • At the playground
    • In the park
  • It is not safe for children to ride a bicycle in the street.
  • Children learn from watching their parents. Set a good example by following safety precautions when riding with your child.
