Wanna Join My Ride?

Learning to ride a bicycle is one of the crowning achievements in a young child's life. The smile on the face of a child enjoying a bike ride is priceless. Along with fundamental riding techniques, it is also important to teach a child bicycle safety so they can enjoy their bike without getting hurt. Teaching bicycle safety to a child can be easily accomplished by following a few simple steps.
*Tell the child to avoid riding on busy streets.

*Instruct them to ride only in daylight. Riding after dark demands special equipment and skills that young children don't possess. Encourage them to call for a ride home if they ever find themselves out on their bicycle after dark.

*Teach the child to stop at every stop sign and look both ways before proceeding. Have them walk their bicycle across intersections rather than riding.

*Admonish the child to refrain from playing around in the street.

*Encourage them to avoid giving in to peer pressure and make their own choices. One of their friends may make a dangerous move such as running a stop sign, but it doesn't mean they have to do it, too. This is one of the most important lessons in teaching bicycle safety as children have a tendency to follow the crowd.

hahahaha hindi ako natutong mag bike eh.... laging semplang hahaha.... pero would you believe if i tell na marunong akong mag motor? wala lang napadaan lang ako.... yesterday I saw a mother and her 4 year old son.... they were having thier bicycle lessons at natutuwa ako how the mother would run so fast trying to catch her son para lang hindi magalusan or masaktan yung anak niya.... seeing them makes me happy and sad at the same time... i never felt that my mom cares for me nor even loves me... nakaka inggit kasi... i'm happy now with my life.. a life without ever seeing any of my family members pero i cant deny that i miss them kahit laging sakit ng katawan lang ang inaabot ko nung mag kakasama pa kami... haaaay... thanks for listening este reading pala...
