Kids + Bikes = Safety

Pipestone Flyer

    If you have a small someone running around your home who is between the ages of 6 and 11 years old, and you are worried their new found freedom on two wheels might be a cause for concern as far as safety goes, then the City of Leduc has you in mind.

    This Saturday, May 11th, the City is hosting a free bike safety program for children between 6&11 in the Sobey's Arena at the LRC. There will be two sessions run, one at 10 am and one at noon.

    The course is designed to provide hands on learning opportunities and safe riding practices for kids between these ages.

    "This one-day event focuses on teaching children about bicycle safety, proficient riding skills, and the rules of the road,” says CPO Sgt. Malaine Wark, supervisor of Enforcement Services (Community Peace Officer) with the City of Leduc. “We’re providing a fun environment for youth to learn the importance of safe and acceptable riding practices.”

    Children will need to bring along a few basic pieces of equipment for this course, namely; a two wheeled bike (training wheels are not allowed), a proper bike helmet, closed toed shoes, and proper riding and weather appropriate clothing.

    As previously mention, the course is free but registration is required. You can register your child either in person at the Leduc Recreation Centre or by calling 780-980-7120. If you would like more information about this course please call Leduc Enforcement Services at 780-980-7200 (option 5).
