Last week, your volunteers delivered this safety tip to the schools and talked with the kids about bike safety! One of the bright young ladies in the fifth grade reminded us of the ABC Quick Check memory aid that she was taught and performs at home!
Outside the winds are soft and the sun gives a nice glow,
Before your bike ride, THINK! Safety is the way to go!
Stop and make sure that your handlebars are straight and tight
And that your seat is at a proper height that’s just right!
Check your tires because of all the pressure they take!
Try a squeeze and push so you know you’re safe when you brake!
Ensure that your strong chain is there – running smooth and clean!
Lastly, your lights and reflectors should give a nice sheen!
And only then do you know that you are safe to go!
