May is National Bike Safety Month.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year more than a half million people in the U.S. are treated in the emergency room and more than 700 people die as a result of bicycle related injuries.

Bicycling can be a fun and healthy family activity, but there are necessary precautions we all should take for safety's sake.

Sandy Gallant is with the staff from Children's Hospital of Illinois for this week's Get Fit Friday.
