How To Find A Bicycle Helmet That Fits Your Kid

By dadcamp |

In my area children under 18 must wear helmets, by law. When you get over 18, it’s up to you. I’ve never understood that logic, to be honest. As spring warms up the neighborhoods, more families are out riding on weekends and after dinner. The kids are all buckled up, the parents riding in front or behind with no helmet. It makes no sense to me.

We’ve had strict helmet rules for our boys from day 1 and if I so much as wheel my bike out of the garage to get the team saddled up for a ride without a helmet on, the boys will remind me to bucket up.

According to Alberta Health Services, bicycle crashes are the leading cause of brain injury in school-aged children. Most injuries occur when a cyclist suffers a fall, strikes a stationary object, or collides with another cyclist. One child under 15 dies every day, and one suffers a head injury every 4 minutes. Injuries that could be prevented with helmets.

Here are some more reminders to get your kids, and you, properly helmeted in advance of the bike riding season.
