EN Kids Stay Cool, Learn Bike Safety

Kids in Saddlebrook Village in East Naples received hands-on lessons in bicycle safety from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office on June 22.

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

McGruff the Crime Dog discussed general safety tips, while members of the Golden Gate Fire Department cooled the kids off with water from a fire truck. Management at Saddlebrook rewarded the kids with ice cream sundaes for participating in the bike safety rodeo.
