Bikes, children, and the great outdoors

Optimist Clubs are involved in helping keep our children safe. One of the more popular activities is a Bike Safety Fair or Bike Rodeo.

It is fairly easy to teach bicycle safety and most police departments enjoy being asked to help. They often bring the the safety cones and help the young bikers go through an obstacle course.

Have someone on hand to take a look at the children's bikes, make sure the chain is tight and the wheels are in good shape. Always emphasize how important it is to the use a helmet.

Now, the rest of the activity is up to your Optimist Club! Add refreshments, entertainment, exhibits, raffles, drawings and other safety tips to the day. Make it fun for the family and you are sure to make it fun for the Optimist Club members too.

It's summer! Time to show our kids that it's fun to be outdoors.
