Did you know? According to Good Housekeeping: Every year, 350,000 children under age 15 go to hospital emergency rooms with bike-related injuries. Of that number, 130,000 children suffer head injuries and an estimated 200 die. By wearing a helmet, a child can reduce her risk of injury by as much as 85 percent. But remember -- a bicycle helmet must fit properly to be safe.
