Bike Safety

Posted: May 25, 2018 in Current News

St. Louis now has not one, but two bike shares! Bike riding is becoming more convenient and more popular in the city. This is great because bikes are more affordable than cars, better for the environment than cars, and help get people moving! But unfortunately bike safety is something that is often overlooked. Many people assume that because bikes do not move as fast as cars that they’re safer or that it’s not worth the effort to follow bike safety. However, we know that most bike accidents do not occur when a car hits a bike. We also know that children are more likely to suffer an injury on a bike because they aren’t following safety rules. So, here’s some quick safety tips for riding a bike. You can find more information about bike injuries and safety on the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Website.
