PARMA, Ohio - Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus in Parma will host its annual Bicycle Safety Day on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for children aged 5 through 13.
Kids will learn proper steering, braking and maneuverability skills. Instructors also will teach proper helmet fitting techniques.
"This is a great program that's open to the general public," said Tri-C Western Campus Director of Safety Lt. Al Moreland. "The kids have a blast while we help young residents learn how to stay safe while riding their bikes. These young people learn what their parents already know, that being a responsible rider is the biggest part about riding a bicycle."
Participants will be entertained by magicians, face-painting, pony rides and airbrush tattoos.
Free bicycle helmets will be offered at no cost while quantities last. A free hot dog lunch will also be available.
For more information, contact Campus Police and Security Services department at 216-987-5326.
