Bike Safety Days at Local Grade SchoolsThe Cyclist is a proud sponsor of Bike Safety Days at local grade schools in our community. Check out some of the photos of our past events we've hosted with the help of the Newport Police Department. We partnered with the Newport Police Department to help kids at the Newport Mesa Elementary School. We perform safety checks for the students's bikes (and scooters) as part of the event because we want the kids to have safe bikes with pumped up tires, and lubed chains. We set up courses for the kids to practice their bike handling skills and gain confidence on two wheels. Students stop for a quick photo with our great Police Department volunteers. Students also met some of our staff and received tips on how to take care of their bikes. Lots of students and lots of bikes! Everyone had a great time and learned a lot about bike safety.
