Bike Safety

Bike safety is important for children and adults of all ages. It not only involves wearing a properly fitted helmet but also knowing the "rules of the road" while riding as a family.

All Heads Covered: 
Our Wheeled-Sports Safety Program

Curriculum Kit

The All Heads Covered Wheeled-Sports Safety kit is designed to help educators teach bike and wheeled-sports safety in a classroom or in the community. The kit was created by Blank Children's Hospital and Safe Kids Iowa with generous funding from the Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau. It includes a comprehensive, simple and fun safety presentation for elementary-aged children.
