Bike Safely

The safety of our kids is paramount to everyone at Commonwealth Swim Club and the Kings Park West Civic Association.  Here are some tips to make getting your child to and from the pool safe and worry free.

  1. Wear a helmet
  2. Make sure your bike is adjusted properly.  This includes the seat height, brakes, and reflectors.  Also make sure all bolts are tight and the chain is greased. 
  3. Check the brakes. 
  4. Don't ride at night and make sure reflectors are installed and are working.
