Neighbour Day Bike Programs

By Pamela McHugh

Thanks to the generous support of the Alberta Traffic Safety Fund, the Capitol Hill Community Association is able to host a number of free, active transportation focused programs.

On June 15th, as part of the CHCA Neighbour Day event, Safer Cycling Calgary will offer FREE Family Bike Rodeo (Level 2: Cycling Basics course) workshops. Plan to come to the community association for the Neighbour Day and sign your kids up for this "playground" based event that introduces cyclists to key bike handling skills that they will need to ride safely. Helmet are required and this course is typically designed for kids 6 years of age and older.

Workshops will take place at 9am, 11am and 1pm. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged to help us plan for numbers. Head to the Safe Cycle Calgary website: https://tinyurl.com/SCCL2CH. Kids participating in the workshops will have the chance to win lots of fun bike safety prizes. At 2:30pm we will have an obstacle course open for kids of all ages and abilities

Adults and kids alike should bring their bikes because we will have Velofix Calgary on-site offering FREE bike tune-ups out of their mobile repair van. They will be on-site from 11am until 4pm so come on by.

And don’t forget to swing by the CHCA information booth to fill out a community survey and enter for a chance to win one of many fantastic prizes. See you there!
