One of the best summer activities is bike riding. Did you know that May is National Bike Month?! This is a great reason to encourage your kids to get out and explore the neighborhood while getting exercise at the same time. If your child has the NEW VTech Kidizoom Action Cam they can capture their bike adventures to share with you later.
I wrote about the Action Cam in my VTech Toy Fair 2015 recap but wanted to share more for National Bike Month, a good time to talk about why biking is fun and the importance of bike safety. To help your family keep bike riding safe and fun, VTech is sharing these 5 tips!
- Ensure your kids wear a helmet! It is the single most effective safety device available to reduce any chance of head injury.
- Tell your kids to ride on the right side of the road, with traffic, not against it. Stay as far to the right as possible. Use appropriate hand signals and respect traffic signals, stopping at all stop signs and stoplights.
- Teach your kids to make eye contact with drivers. Bikers should make sure drivers are paying attention and are going to stop before they cross the street.
- When riding at dusk, dawn or in the evening, make sure kids use lights and reflectors! It’s also smart to wear clothes and accessories that have retro-reflective materials to improve biker visibility to motorists.
- Actively supervise children until you’re comfortable that they are responsible to ride on their own.
Now that kids (and parents) know more about bike safety, it's time to accessorize.
The Action Cam is fully loaded with accessories and easy to use mounts for all around fun and safe experience. Kids (with parents help) can attach the Action Cam with a mount to their bike helmet and then zoom around town. No adventure is too big or too small for the Action Cam.
