The Health Initiative recently hosted a bike rodeo at Outer Market Mania during the Potsdam Summer Festival.
A bike rodeo is a fun bicycle skills event that provides an opportunity for bicyclists to practice and develop skills that will help them to avoid accidents and become safer bicyclists. Forty youth ages 4 through 14 attended the event.
Thanks to the St. Lawrence County Traffic Safety Program, Potsdam Village Police Department, Potsdam Central School, Wear on Earth and the Potsdam Chamber of Commerce and many individuals for their support and partnership in this program.
With their generous support, we are encouraged that there are a greater number of north country youth practicing appropriate bicycle safety.
