Always make your children wear a helmet

Helmets are very important to wear while riding bikes but the worst can still happen. I found this story while just surfing the net. It is about a 12 year old girl that was at summer camp and died while riding her bike. Venus Stratton was going downhill with some other children and two Camp Redcloud instructors, when she wrecked her bike. She was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident but the injury occurred on the side of her head where the helmet wasn’t covering. The rule for a snug, good–fitting helmet is that it should fit like a hat and you should only be able to fit two fingers of room under the chin between the strap.
