Spring is here and summer will soon be rolling around. Young people all over the region will be pulling out bicycles for fun and transportation. Every year we hear tragic stories of children injured in falls and other bike related incidents. Let’s prevent those incidents by teaching our children to drive their bikes safely.
The Mahalala District will sponsor its first “Bike Rodeo” on June 22, 2013 from 9-11 AM at 10000 Midlantic Drive in Mount Laurel. This event will include helmet fit stations, bike inspection stations, and skill stations led by certified instructors from the League of American Bicyclists. Skill stations will include fun activities on the bicycle that will help your child deal with everyday situations. This event is open to all cub scouts and families in the Garden State Council-BSA. Preregistration is required. Questions please email Frank Plunkett at firstname.lastname@example.org
Participants: Bike Shops, League of American Bicyclists, Troop 76, Mount Laurel Police Department, Brain Injury Association of NJ, NJ Bike and Walk Coalition.
