The Mendenhall Flying Lions partnered with the Shepherd of the Valley Church yesterday for their annual Bicycle Safety Rodeo. The intent of this event is to teach children about bike safety — what to do when you come upon a cross walk, what to look for.
We had a riding course for then to test their riding ability, concentration, and balance. We even got a “this is awesome!”
Lions and the Juneau Police Department joined the fun!
Children who needed bikes could get a refurbished bike here for free and if they brought their bike, they were tuned up. Children without helments got one for free.
Inside was more fun and games with hot dogs, tatooing, and other games.
Not only was this a great community service but we all had fun doing it!
