1 Every year nearly 500 children under age 15 die in bicycle accidents involving a car. Most of these deaths are due to the biker s behavior riding into the street without stopping, running a stop sign, or riding against the flow of traffic. On top of that, nearly one million children suffer biking-related injuries that require medical attention. The statistics are alarming. Clearly, it is important to review bike safety with your students and teach them the rules that can help keep them safe. Get in Gear! is a free bike safety educational program that can help students learn potentially life-saving lessons. Brought to you by Lee Jeans, the maker of Lee Pipes, Get in Gear! is designed for students in grades four and five and can be easily adapted for students in grade three as well. Get in Gear! features professional bike rider Ryan Nyquist, who shares his expertise with your students. Through a high-energy and friendly video, interactive worksheets and colorful poster, Ryan will review important rules of bike safety with your students including pre-ride checks, rules of the road, and rules for trying tricks. At the completion of the program, students receive an official bike safety certificate signed by Ryan. Get in Gear! encourages parents to become involved, too. A special parent letter highlights specific things to look for when checking a bike for safety, reviews rules of the road, and recommends Internet resources. We encourage you to share this program with your colleagues. Although the materials are copyrighted, you have permission to make as many copies as you need for educational purposes. And please take a moment to complete and return the enclosed response card. Your feedback helps us create programs that meet the needs of teachers nationwide. Ryan Nyquist

It will give students a sense of pride for successfully completing the program. Activity One Get in Gear Objectives To strengthen students knowledge of ready-to-ride rules. To emphasize the caution and care professionals use when getting ready to ride. Presenting the Activity Once you ve distributed the activity sheets to students, explain that they ll be taking a quiz to see what they know about getting ready to ride. Tell students that after they complete the quiz, they ll watch the video, featuring professional bike rider Ryan Nyquist, to learn some of the answers to the quiz. Other answers appear on the poster and below. Invite students to complete the quiz on their own. Then watch the video as a class so that students can find general answers. Then discuss the answers in detail. Answers 1. Only beginners and little kids need helmets. Disagree. A helmet is the most important piece of bike riding equipment for every rider. In three out of
3 four bike crashes, bikers suffer a head injury. If you fall, a helmet protects your head, helping prevent injuries to your skull or brain. Today s helmets are comfortable and lightweight, but must fit properly to work right, so buy carefully. 2. You re getting a new bike. Choose the biggest one possible. You ll grow into it and it will save you money. Disagree. It might save you money, but it won t save you from getting hurt. You have less control over a bike that s too big. Get the right size bike. When you are standing on the ground, straddling the bike, you should have between one and three inches between you and the top bar. For a girl s bike, imagine a bar being there. Allow for a bigger gap if you re buying a mountain bike. 3. Grab your shades. They make a difference. Agree. Wearing sunglasses helps you maintain control of your bike by keeping sun, dirt, stones or other debris out of your eyes. 4. Your seat should be at the proper height. Your foot is on the pedal at its lowest position and your knee should be slightly bent. Agree. When you are sitting on the seat with your foot on the lower pedal, your knee should be slightly bent. 5. Lost a reflector? It s OK. Bright clothes will do if you must ride at night. Disagree. You should have at least two reflectors on your bike. One on the front and one on the rear. The one on the rear should be red and at least three inches across. It s best not to ride at night, but if you do, wear bright clothing with reflective materials sewn onto it. And, be sure you have a headlight on your bike. 6. Don t forget to check your chain before you ride to make sure it s tight, clean, and lubed. Agree. If your chain is dry or dirty, the bike won t go or may stop suddenly. You should check the tension, too. 7. Test both front and rear brakes. Sticky brakes can be a bummer and may even make you take a header. Agree. Properly functioning brakes are obviously important, so they should be tested every time you ride. The pressure should be equal and they should make your tires skid on dry pavement. 8. Once you ve inflated your tires to the right pressure, you re good for weeks. Disagree. Check your tire pressure before you ride, every time. Usage decreases pressure. Properly inflated tires make for a smoother ride and make it easier to handle obstacles. 9. Loose, comfortable clothes are great for biking. Agree.The right clothing is an important part of any pre-ride check. Cool comfortable clothing lets you ride better and have more fun. 10. Put on your headphones. It s cool to listen to tunes while riding. Disagree. Tunes may make the ride more interesting, but with headphones on you can t hear approaching cars or bikers. That spells danger. 11. Practicing jumps or wheelies? Gear up with pads, gloves and a helmet. Agree. It s a good rule to wear extra gear when practicing stunts. Even the pros agree with that. Spills can hurt. 12. Are dress shoes, flip-flops, or bare feet OK? No way. Agree. Make sure you have the proper shoes. Flip-flops and shoes with cleats and heels are dangerous they can get caught in the pedals. And never ride barefoot. Follow-up Activities 1. Conduct a helmet check. Have students check their helmets to make sure they fit right, and look for a CPSC or Snell B-95 sticker inside to be sure the helmet has been tested and approved. 2. Encourage students to make a reminder checklist of their own and display it in their room or garage. Students can decorate their checklists with drawings of stunt riding or pictures from a stunt riding magazine. Activity Two Gear Check Objectives To reinforce students knowledge of bike safety rules. To remind students of the importance of checking bike equipment before they ride. Presenting the Activity Introduce this activity by telling students that knowing and following the rules of the road helps. Part I Have students complete a crossword puzzle to test and review their knowledge of road rules for safe biking. Part 2 Encourage students to unscramble the words to find bike equipment they should check out before riding and a word that tells why they should do a pre-ride bike check. Once students finish unscrambling the words, they should use the circled letters to write an important bike safety rule Stay alert! Answers Part I : Across: 1. helmet, 4. night, 6. dirt, 7. flow, 9. alert, 11. person, 13. hop, 14. wheelies. Down: 1. hand signals, 2. traffic, 3. straddling, 5. gravel, 8. weave, 10. teacher, 11. pads, 12. right. Part 2 : 1. handlebars, 2. helmet, 3. chain, 4. safety, 5. brakes, 6. reflector, 7. pedals, 8. tires, 9. seat. Important safety rule: Stay Alert! Source: Propelled by Pedals: Follow-up Activities 1. Encourage students to create their own posters to complement the wall poster included in this program. They can work in groups and should include the important safety tips they have learned. Students can then display their posters around the school so others can be reminded to follow bike safety rules.
4 2. Students who are interested in stunt riding may want to work together to create a bicycle park in town. Help students figure out the appropriate person to contact, then write letters. This hands-on civics lesson helps students learn how your local government operates while working toward a common goal. Activity Three On the Road Objectives To strengthen students awareness of the importance of keeping alert. To demonstrate to students how professionals keep alert while riding no matter how regularly they ride. Presenting the Activity Use the secret message from the word scramble in Activity Two (Stay Alert!) to introduce this activity. Discuss the importance of keeping alert always, but particularly when riding a bike. Ask students for examples of possible dangers they should be alert to when bike riding. Possible answers include cars, other bikers, sewer grates, and curbs. Distribute the activity sheet and explain to students that they ll follow a busy biker as he winds his way through town, helping him avoid obstacles and properly handle risky situations. Students should read each scenario and circle the letter corresponding to the best way to handle it. Students should also write the reasons for their selection. Answers: 1. b, 2. a, 3. c, 4. c, 5. b, 6. c, 7. a. Follow-up Activities 1. Have students describe on paper obstacles and sudden situations bikers might confront while riding. Then fold the papers and place them in a box or other container. Next, students take turns drawing a situation, reading it to the class, and describing what they would do in such a situation. 2. Encourage students to use the situations from this activity to create a game to play with younger bikers to help them learn to keep alert while riding. They can visit other classrooms to play the game. Activity Four Road Scholar! Objectives To review safety rules for biking. To evaluate and reinforce students overall knowledge of bike safety. Presenting the Activity Introduce this activity by sharing with students your confidence in their knowledge of bike safety, both before riding and while riding. Explain to students that this final activity is a fun, visual test of the bike safety knowledge they have learned from the Get in Gear! program. Encourage student performance by telling them that all students who complete the test satisfactorily will receive a special certificate with a message from Ryan Nyquist. Answers: Student answers should cover the following situations, but not necessarily in the same order. 1. A biker practicing tricks and not wearing pads. 2. A biker trying to do tricks on an unsafe ramp board on a pail. 3. Two kids riding on one bike. 4. A biker not wearing a helmet. 5. A biker wearing headphones. 6. A biker with loose straps from a backpack dangling near the rear wheel. 7. A biker riding barefoot. 8. A biker heading for a car door opening, but looking the other way. 9. A biker riding against traffic. 10. A biker carrying a package and riding with one hand. Follow-up Activities 1. Encourage your students to discuss the program with their families, share the parent letter, and quiz their parents and siblings about bike safety rules they have learned. Students can report back to the class how many times they stumped their families and what they taught them. 2. Familiarize your students with your state s bicycling laws. Use the resource list below. Discuss the laws with your students. Ask them to consider the reasoning behind the laws and how they help the state s citizens. Online Resources The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration s Safety City Bike Tour offers extensive, kid-friendly information about all aspects of bike safety. biketour/ You ll find safety tips, statistics and product information at KidsHealth online.
