BICYCLE OWNERSHIP, USE AND INJURY PATTERNS AMONG ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN IN CHITTENDEN COUNTY, VERMONT
A study was made of bicycle ownership among over 6,000 children ages 5-12 in Burlington and South Burlington, Vermont, and of all medically treated injuries over a four-month period involving moving bicycles to children in this age range who lived in Burlington and surrounding communities. A total of 104 such injuries were studied. The injured children were compared with uninjured neighbors matched for age and sex to determine bicycle style, length and nature of bicycle riding experience, level of activity and risk taking behavior relative to other children the same age and sex, and parental interest in sports.
