Pedal for Safety

Whether you cycle for sport, fun or just getting around, one fact is certain: your best protection against serious head injury caused by a fall or a collision is a bicycle helmet.

While a helmet can't prevent an accident, it can reduce the risk of severe injury, disability or even death. The group most at risk are children aged five to 14. About one-sixth of children's deaths each year are due to head or neck injuries that result from biking collisions or falls.

Adults must encourage children to wear helmets and set a good example by wearing them themselves – they can save young lives as well as their own.

The helmet should fit properly, be worn correctly and should be manufactured to meet strict safety standards.

Safety Approvals - In the province of New Brunswick, cyclists are required by law to wear an approved "certified" helmet. In Kouchibouguac National Park pedal for safety.
