Child Bicyclist Quiz
BikeSafetyQuiz.com is a first-of-its-kind resource developed by Ride Illinois that teaches adults, children, motorists, and truck drivers how to share the road safely.

KIDS ON BIKES
Kids riding bikes to school, exploring their neighborhoods, and establishing healthy habits all stems from the original motivation to start Kids on Bikes. The unacceptable rise in childhood obesity rates, less kids riding bikes year after year to and from school, and an increase on the amount of time kids spend on various screens each day has continued to provide us with the motivation that we must always dream big, but start small, in order to inspire and empower ALL KIDS to lead HEALTHY, ACTIVE, and HAPPY lives through bicycling.
Mom in the Spotlight: Rebecca Resman
A growing number of Chicago families are saying no to cars and traffic jams. Instead, they are opting to pedal their way around the city. One of the people behind the movement is Rebecca Resman, who has been using bikes as her family's transportation for seven years, since her oldest was just 6 weeks old.
She started Chicago Family Biking as a way to connect families like hers. From there, she launched the Kidical Mass Chicago Neighborhood Bike Rides to spread the word that families can live just fine by bike alone.
