Three years ago Our Cub Master organized a bike rodeo for our district.
He started by contacting the public safety office and obtianed
information on the rule of bike riding on public street. He also found
that we had a city commission for safe bicycling. The people came and set
up mini traffic lanes with street signs, chuck hole, rail road crossings
and absticle course. He also had a gentleman from a Cycling Shop come and
do a bike inspection and taught the boys how to repair and adjust their
bikes. I may still have some of the flyers. If you want, I could mail
them to you.
