Family Focus: Summer Bike Riding

Posted: Updated:

The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and now it’s time for summer activities.

“We play Frisbee, we come to the park, swings, and slides,” says father of three D’andre Criss.

Two of Criss’s kids are old enough to ride bikes. Before they ride off, Criss teaches them the rules of the road. He says they know when they come to the curb they have to stop and look both ways. After his own experiences falling off of a motorcycle, Criss wants to make sure his kids are protected.

“If I didn’t have my helmet on, I probably wouldn’t be here talking to you guys,” he Criss.

It’s not just children. All riders need to treat biking just like driving.

Minot Police Department officer Todd Haman says bikers have to stop at stop signs and only head into intersections when it’s safe to do so. They also have to remember hand signals when turning left or right.

If you’re driving a car, you need to not only drive for yourself, but for others, too.

“In a residential area, anticipate a child not only riding a bike but also chasing a ball, chasing each other, playing tag. Motorists need to do their part too by using extra caution,” Officer Haman says.

It’s best to play it safe.
