Amy Hughes, Keep Loup Basin Beautiful (KLBB) Project Coordinator, invites youth to attend the Bicycle Recycle and Safety Day being held July 14, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at the Burwell Elementary School Basketball Courts. Youth will learn how to identify different bicycle parts, have an inspection done on their bikes to make sure they are in great working order, will learn how to utilize parts from other bikes to fix their own if needed, will be educated in proper bicycle safety while riding, will apply what is learned in a bicycle rodeo safety course, learn where old and outgrown bicycles can be donated, and learn about proper recycling strategies while riding. Participants will also receive a new bicycle helmet courtesy of the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and Burwell Police Department. With summer in full swing and youth heading out to the pool, to friends houses, or just to ride it is very important for that proper riding etiquette be taught and utilized along with wearing helmets. Those interested are asked to pre-register by June 15, 2016 by filling out and returning a registration form that can be found on the KLBB website (www.keeploupbasinbeautiful.org) and KLBB Facebook page (Keep Loup Basin Beautiful) or by calling 308-346-3393 or emailing [email protected]. Registration is required to ensure proper helmet size is ordered for each individual.
