Registration is now open for the 2nd Annual Bike Safety Day that is being held on June 4 in the Garmin parking lot in the Quarry.

It's an opportunity for youth ages four to 14 to be fully prepared for the bike season ahead.

Safety knowledge will be shared by an RCMP officer, followed by participants riding either a beginner or advanced course to practice their bike safety knowledge.

Volunteer crews will also make sure both the bikes and helmets are sound.

"If the helmet is cracked or not appropriate, we will replace them," says Ron Gosselin, Kiwanis Club president. "Then the bike is inspected for the brakes and gears and the proper height of the seat, and all the basic stuff."

If the bike requires more than a minor tuneup, participants will receive a gift certificate to have a full tuneup completed at a local bike shop.

A goodie bag will also be provided.

Gosselin says the course lasts an hour and they can accommodate 30 youth in each of the one-hour time slots from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The earlier you sign up, the better the chance of getting your preferred time slot.
