Being safe while having fun is as easy as riding a bike


Children ages 4 to 14 are invited to attend the free bike safety program on Wednesday, May 17, at 5:30 p.m., at the Gundersen Prairie du Chien Clinic.

Bike safety program May 17 in PdC

By Correne Martin

Bicycle riding is fun, healthy, and a great form of independence. But it is important to remember that a bicycle is not a toy; it’s a vehicle.

A free bike safety program Wednesday evening, May 17, at the Gundersen Prairie du Chien Clinic, is scheduled to share safety tips, challenge riders on a course and offer bike and helmet checks. This event, which has been offered for more than 16 years, is geared toward children ages 4 to 14 years old.

The program will begin at 5:30 p.m., in the parking lot of the health clinic, where bike and helmet checks will be done and kids will be invited to navigate a “bike rodeo course,” complete with stop signs and opportunities to practice making turns. At 6:15 p.m., the crowd will head into the clinic lobby for a presentation about bike safety, given by Officer Ashley Erickson, of the Prairie du Chien Police Department.
