Bike safety from the Optimist Club

What does a bike safety day look like? That's a question that I've been asked more than once and I'm almost embarrassed to describe the minimal amount of work that can go into making one a success. Find some volunteers, set up some safety cones, add in kids on bikes, and teach them how to be safe when they are riding, especially in traffic. Of course wearing a helmet is de rigueur, so check to be sure the helmets of your participants fit properly.

The good news is that police departments and fire departments love this type of activity and with proper notice most will get involved with your Optimist Club to provide this service to the community. Involving others is then up to your imagination! What would make the day fun for all?

The Huron Valley Optimist Club and the Friends of White Lake Library recently combined their vision and imagination to host a Bike Fest and Safety Day. Watch the 2-minute video and see what they brought to life for their community and then go ahead, give it a try in yours.
