Children adore exploring the world on their bikes, for it is a time when imagination runs wild! Regardless of whether your child has a supped up bike or an old hand-me-down banana seat bike with training wheels attached, the importance of safety is always first priority. It is very important that your young adventurer follow these safety rules while riding on the paved bike trails at our Wilderness Lodging in Lake George:
- The Buddy System – Even though the park is securely enclosed, it is a good idea to make sure children have a buddy to accompany them on their bike ride. Not only is biking in a group double the fun than riding alone, but it ensures added safety while on the paved bike trails. Make sure you educate your children about the Park’s boundaries, possibly accompanying your older children first before they go on the trails with their friends. The Buddy System applies to all activities – whether you are swimming in the pool, hiking up French Mountain or enjoying a wonderful horseback ride. Bike riding in the Adirondacks will instill wonderful memories that you will cherish with your children for years to come.
- Wear a Helmet – This is essential when bike riding in New York State. Whether you are riding on the paths within our Wilderness Lodging in Lake George, or other Adirondack bike trails, it is important to remember this necessity. Equip your children with bike helmets and other riding apparel and enjoy your ride through the Park.
- Bring the Necessary Equipment – Before you venture out on the bike trails, make sure to check the local weather forecast – you don’t want to get stuck out in the woods when a rain shower or thunderstorm is on its way. Be prepared with extra clothing; rain coats, sweatshirts, and sunglasses. Also, don’t forget to bring along an extra First-Aid kit, map, compass and sun block for those sunny days. Bumps, scrapes and bruises happen frequently with the little ones, therefore it’s better to be prepared for every situation. For those hot summer days, you may find shade under a tall pine tree, but you cannot escape humidity. Bring along a water bottle or thermos to share with your group.
- Respect the Hikers – Along with bike riding, family hiking in the Adirondacks is another favorite pastime shared by adventurers and tourists alike. While on your bike ride, make sure to pay attention to your surroundings. Not only will staying alert help in avoiding getting lost, it will also make you aware of other patrons that may cross your path. Since the paved trails are used by so many of our guests (hikers, walkers, and joggers), make sure to be respectful to all of our guests. Teach your children that abiding by the rules with not only keep them safe, but guarantee a fun-filled, action packed bike riding experience.
