The child below, biking Seaside, is coming off a sidewalk into a crosswalk. Extra caution required! Most people do agree that children up to approximately age 13 cannot really make the necessary decisions about vehicle speed and distance that allow them to bike safely in the street.

Special thanks to the father and daughter pictured at the top of this post, who graciously paused for photos during their Sunday ride on Garden Road, Monterey.
