Bike safety course for children on May 21


Children will have the opportunity to learn everything they need to know in order to enjoy safe bike rides this summer during a free Birch Bay event 2-4 p.m. on Friday, May 21.

The “Confidence Skills Course” will be held in the Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2’s activity center parking lot at 7511 Gemini Street. The event will teach students in third grade how to check their bikes before rides, pump tires, brake safely and wear their helmets correctly.

Children need to bring their own bikes for activities, which will be available for families to drop in as they choose. A free blinking safety clip provided by Tay’s Safety Supply will be given to every child.

The event is hosted by BBBPRD2, Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, Whatcom Smart Trips and the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce.

Up to 50 children may participate in the event.

People who want to attend can sign up at the BBBPRD2 website, at
