Claremore Police Holds Bicycle Rodeo Class For Kids
CLAREMORE, Oklahoma - Claremore's Police Department is focusing on bicycle safety this summer. They held a bicycle rodeo safety class Saturday.
Kids got a chance to study the rules of the road, bicycle security and proper hand signals during the class. Some of the kids even went on a training ride with police officers.
With students out of school for the summer, police said now is the time to give children a safety refresher course.
"Just a few weeks ago we had an auto-pedestrian with a girl on a bicycle, and I don't believe she was wearing a helmet," said Eli Vang, Claremore Police Department.
"Some of that could've been avoided."
The police department gave away a bicycle helmet to the first 15 people who checked in for each session.
