Students Get Hands-On Bike Safety Lesson

Golden Gate Intermediate School students got hands-on lessons in bicycle safety from CCSO on Wednesday and Thursday.

The bike safety rodeo was a chance for deputies to teach kids how to properly fit a helmet, obey all traffic signs and ride a bike safely by testing their skills on an obstacle course.

Cpl. Bruce Cordivari and school crossing guard Constance Bettinger-Hennick make sure each student stopped and looked both ways whenever they approach a stop sign.

Cpl. Cordivari offers safety tips before a group of eager students tests their skills on the obstacle course.

Cpl. Cordivari fields a question from a fourth-grader about bike safety.
