Free Bicycle Helmets Offered to Shildren Who Attend May 20 Event
The Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will host its annual Bicycle Safety Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 20, to promote and encourage safe riding habits.
Bicycle helmets will be given to children ages 5 to 12 while supplies last. Studies show that helmets reduce the risk of head and brain injuries in the event of a crash.
Children who attend Bicycle Safety Day will learn about safe riding habits and proper helmet fitting. Participants also will get the chance to test their steering, braking and general maneuverability skills on an obstacle course.
The family-friendly event will include free hamburger or hot dog lunches, plus entertainment and activities. Children and adults also can check out local safety vehicles as well as an emergency medical helicopter.
The free event will be held rain or shine at the KeyBank Public Safety Training Center at Western Campus, 11000 Pleasant Valley Road in Parma. Bicycle Safety Day is sponsored by Tri-C’s Campus Police and Security Services.
