It’s springtime, and children are everywhere on bicycles. Bike Smart Easton has tried to balance this youthful exuberance of conveyance with bicycle street smarts.

Since our first event on March 28th, over 1,400 Lehigh Valley children have attended Bike Smart Easton’s in-school assemblies at six elementary schools. 394 children have participated in hands-on, feet-on Bike Day events, receiving new helmets, bicycle safety checks and riding instruction.

Are you interested to participate in children’s Bike Day events?  What would you like to do?  Are you solo, or do you have a group that would like to help with: registration, helmet fitting, helmet decorating art, mechanic support, riding skills, entertainment?   As a volunteer, you would work with and be guided by staff and instructors.  As a staff member, you would take responsibility to run a station, supervise volunteers and be paid for your time.  Certified Instructors will work to optimize educational value of the events.
On Thursday, February 12 at 7pm, Bike Smart Easton will be holding an info session for interested staff & volunteers.
Location: Easton Area Community Center (EACC), 901 Washington Street, Easton, PA
