We took advantage of the over 150,000 riders CicLAvia attracted to reinforce our core message that when we encourage children to bike and walk to school, they should be taught to do so safely and responsibly. The intent is to have fun with the kids but also make sure they – and their parents – ride away with important information, such as how to properly wear and fit their helmet and how to control their bike.

Teaching children - and parents - how to properly adjust helmets is essential in any bike safety lesson.
