Son 14 has been going out on a few bikes rides lately on his own. All the years I have been trying to get him to wear a helmet and he won't.
He has now asked me for a helmet because he wants to start going on some roads and seems keen to do more cycling. Where do I begin and what to look for without if costing a fortune???
I really want to encourage him. Now need to buy a helmet, he has grown out of the smaller one (unused!). I am also worried. I know there are cycling proficiency classess in the primary schools but not heard of any at senior schools. I am sure he won't be keen but I wan t to try my best to make sure he is safe on the roads.
I was 16st, now 13st but still feel too big to get on a bike. Would love to join him one day.
Grateful for any advice from regular cycle users please
