Bicycling is a basic childhood skill that teaches self-reliance. To make sure children are safe and independent cyclists by age 10, parents must start building (and regularly practicing) safety skills with children in the early elementary school years. Even parents who have excellent bike skills themselves may not understand the developmental limitations that prevent their children from experiencing the road as their parents do.
“Bringing Up Bicyclists” is taught by League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor, Suzanne Ambiel, who uses demonstration, lecture with Powerpoint, video, and Q&A. Parents come away understanding the basics, including: helmet fitting, bike safety checks, etc. They also learn about developmental limitations that affect how children up to age nine see and experience the road. The instructor teaches techniques and fun bike drills and games that parents can use to help children learn more challenging and important safety skills like over-the-shoulder checks. She teaches specific techniques for safely approaching various kinds of intersections on a bike. She also suggests alternative strategies for cyclists of different skill levels.
