Bike safety event in Swift Current, May 17, 2017

Written by 

Young cyclists learned about safe cycling practices in a fun way during a bike safety event at Highland Park in Swift Current, May 17. The event was organized by the City of Swift Current in partnership with the Cypress Health Region and Bright Beginnings Family Centre, while a variety of local sponsors and volunteers helped to make the event possible. A bike safety course has been painted on the surface of the outdoor rink in the park. There is a mock street with crosswalks and stop signs as well as a figure eight, obstacles and a diminishing clearance activity. The course assists cyclists to practise their skills and to gain confidence for riding in an urban environment.
