Optimists promote bicycle safety

With the school year drawing to a close and the days getting longer, it's time for children to take to the streets on two wheels. Bicycle wheels, that is.

That is why bicycle rodeos are very popular with Optimist Clubs. Some call the program Safety on Wheels, while others add in activities like personal safety, internet safety and child identification to make it a full day of safety activities.

Like the sign in the picture, the idea behind safety programs is for Optimist Clubs to help "Bring out the Best in Kids."

Add in "With hope and positive vision, Optimist Club members bring out the best in children" and you've got the Optimist International mission statement in one sentence. Don't you want to get involved in such an active pursuit? Click here to find an Optimist Club near you.
