Bike Safety Fair 2016
This summer over 100 kids joined the Village's Fire-Police Officers for a free bike tune-up and opportunity to learn about the importance of safety rules at the Bike Safety Fair held July 17 at the Amberley Village Police-Fire Department. Kids learned the rules of the road, how to look back, navigate in traffic, and make sure their bikes are safe to ride too.
After completing their safety lessons, kids practiced on the obstacle course with guidance from Amberley Village Officers. The re-creation of a small town with streets and plenty of signage gave a real life perspective. Parents were able to learn the proper helmet size for their child through helmet fitting services provided by Children's Hospital. Free bicycle tune-ups were provided by Cincinnati Bicycle and Hamilton County Safe Communities also shared safety information with the kids.
An anonymous Amberley resident generously donated ice cream for the kids to have a cool treat at our event along with two bicycles that were raffled. The Amberley Village Police-Fire Department would like to thank all who volunteered, donated, and participated to make this such a successful event.
