  • BERT: When I'm out there, on the open bike path,

  • feeling the wind in my eyebrow, I feel so free.

  • BERT: [SINGING] Sure, I've got two little wheels on the side,

  • but that's why my bike is one sweet ride.

  • They help keep me up, help me stay in control.

  • I won't give them up, that's just how I roll.

  • That's how I roll.

  • Oh yeah, that's how I roll.

  • I've got to have each and every wheel

  • because that's how Bert is keeping it real.

  • I've got training wheels and I've got soul.

  • I won't give them up, that's how I roll.

  • [VROOMING]

  • [ELMO LAUGHS]

  • GROVER: Greetings!

  • It is I, your fuzzy and blue safety expert, Grover.

  • Today, I will demonstrate how to be safe on a bicycle

  • with the help of, um, this chicken!

  • Do not worry my fine feathered volunteer,

  • I am an expert after all.

  • We shall begin with this helmet.

  • Yes, this helmet right here, which

  • should look very nice on your knee.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: You are right, that does not

  • look like it would fit your knee.

  • Perhaps your elbow.

  • Yeah.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: Or your head.

  • That's using your noggin my little chickadee,

  • and protecting it too.

  • And now for these ear pads for extra ear protection.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: What is that, little clucker?

  • I can not hear you with my ear pads.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: And they can also be elbow pads, or wing pads

  • if you happen to be poultry.

  • And also for bike safety protection

  • are these backside pads.

  • Yes, to keep your perky tail feathers safe.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: Knee pads?

  • Perhaps our beaky friend is right.

  • You need some knee protection after all.

  • So there you have it.

  • The helmet, followed by the elbow, or wing pads,

  • and the knee pads.

  • You are ready to ride, Henny Penny.

  • Now put the pedal to the metal, chicken!

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS IN FEAR]

  • [CHICKEN CRASHES AND CLUCKS]

  • GROVER: And finally, be sure your volunteer chicken

  • can actually ride a bicycle.

  • CHICKEN: [CLUCKS ANGRILY]

  • GROVER: Oh, why did you not tell me

  • you could not ride that bicycle?

  • I would have gotten training wheels.

  • NARRATOR: And now, our spokesperson.

  • WOMAN: Hello there, bicycle fans.

  • Guess what?

  • I love bicycles?

  • You know why?

  • Because they're fun!

  • Fun to ride.

  • Whee!

  • Fun to go places on.

  • Whoopee!

  • Fun to exercise on.

  • Feeling the burn.

  • They're even fun to sing about.

  • Hey, let's sing a song about a bike now.

  • You may know the song already about a bus.

  • I changed it to a bike because I love bikes.

  • Get ready.

  • Oh!

  • [SINGING] The wheels on a bike go round and round, round

  • and round, round and round.

  • The wheels on the bike go round and round,

  • all through the town.

  • The bell on the bike goes ding, ding, ding.

  • Ding, ding ding.

  • Ding, ding, ding.

  • The bell on the bike goes ding, ding, ding.

  • All through the town.

  • The handlebars on the bike go turn, turn, turn.

  • Turn, turn, turn.

  • Turn, turn, turn.

  • The handlebars on the bike go turn, turn, turn.

  • All through the town.

  • The person on the bike goes up and down, up and down,

  • up and down.

  • The person on the bike goes up and down all through the town!

  • That was great, and now I'm going

  • to ride my bike all through the town.

  • See you next time!

  • ELMO: Wow, look at this bike.

  • Whoa!

  • Whoa, it's so colorful!

  • ABBY: Hiya, Elmo.

  • Wow.

  • What a nice bike!

  • ELMO: Yeah, it's cool.

  • Boy, Elmo would love to go for a ride on it.

  • ABBY: Well, why don't you?

  • ELMO: Oh, well, Elmo's not ready.

  • ABBY: Oh, true.

  • You do have to be ready to ride a bike.

  • But, I can help you with that.

  • ELMO: What?

  • Abby can?

  • ABBY: Sure thing!

  • All it takes is a little magic.

  • ELMO: A helmet?

  • ABBY: Sure!

  • You have to wear a helmet when you ride a bike.

  • ELMO: Well Elmo knows, Abby, but--

  • ABBY: Good, cause it's important to be safe.

  • And now, you're ready to ride.

  • ELMO: No, but Abby, Elmo's still not ready.

  • ABBY: Oh, I get it.

  • You want to be even safer!

  • That's a great idea!

  • There you go!

  • Elmo pads, wrist guards, and knee pads.

  • Now are much safer, so you can take that ride now!

  • ELMO: But Abby, all this stuff is great,

  • but Elmo's still not ready to ride that bike!

  • ABBY: Wow!

  • You really are serious about safety!

  • Well, don't you worry, Elmo, I know just what to do.

  • There you go, Elmo.

  • Now you're as safe as you can possibly be.

  • ELMO: Abby--

  • ABBY: Oh, yeah, you don't have to thank me.

  • I am just happy that I could be the one that--

  • ELMO: Abby!

  • Shh.

  • Abby.

  • Elmo's not ready to ride that bike!

  • ABBY: How can you say that?

  • ELMO: Because Elmo doesn't know how to ride a two wheeler.

  • ABBY: You don't?

  • ELMO: No, Elmo can ride a tricycle,

  • but Elmo hasn't learned to ride a big bike yet.

  • That's why Elmo's not ready to ride.

  • ABBY: [LAUGHS] Oh, boy.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • ELMO: [LAUGHS]

  • ABBY: I'm sorry, Elmo.

  • ELMO: Oh, it's OK.

  • Elmo wants to ride a bike like that someday,

  • but right now Elmo will ride his tricycle, instead.

  • ABBY: Well that sounds like a good idea.

  • ELMO: Yeah.

  • ABBY: And hey, at least you've got your safety gear on,

  • you're protected, so you're ready to ride your trike.

  • See ya, Elmo!

  • ELMO: Oh, bye Abby!

  • Bye!

  • Oh no.

  • Elmo's too protected.

  • Elmo can't ride like this.

  • Abby, come back!

  • Elmo's not ready to ride.

  • No, Elmo's OK.

  • Elmo's protected.
