One of the best times in life is when a parent gets to spend time teaching their children how to ride a bicycle. You go from teaching them how to peddle on a tricycle to finally taking off the training wheels and teaching them how to balance properly on their own. Once your child learns how to ride, you likely begin to wonder when it's ok to let them ride on their own. Let's explore that topic today.
What Colorado child does not want to go whizzing down the street on a bike? Kids and bikes go together like the proverbial peanut butter and jelly. And with Colorado’s Bike to School initiative and events, your kids have even more incentive to learn how to ride a bike.
You love living near your children's school, since it's just a quick walk to the playground and school activities. However, you know that there are risks along the way. There are streets to cross, and your child could quickly fall victim to a pedestrian accident if you're not cautious.
While many people focus on the risks that motorcyclists face each summer, bicyclists face challenges, too. Similarly to those on their motorized counterparts, cyclists face trouble from drivers who pull out in front of them and who don't see them coming.
As a cyclist, one of the things that bothers you most is that drivers don't seem to watch out for you on the roads. Even when you're obviously using the lane, it can be hard to avoid drivers who think they have the right of way and don't need to give you enough space.
Now that the weather is warm, it is the perfect opportunity to ride your bike. Nothing is better than cycling in the beautiful Colorado summertime. With the perfect scenery and the wind in your face, it feels like you are unstoppable.
Whiplash is a sometimes serious injury that can occur in car crashes or in other incidents. It happens when the head whips forward or side to side quickly, tearing, stretching and injuring the tissues in the neck. In particularly severe cases, the brain even has the potential to impact the skull, resulting in whiplash combined with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
