Springfield has experienced far too many bike and pedestrian accidents in the past few years to ignore bike safety as an issue in our community. Many organizations are looking at bike safety, but none are providing both training and a comprehensive kit of safety items that include everything your child or grandchild would need to be visible on the roadway.
The Foundation had identified the comprehensive bike safety campaign as a priority in 2016. We provided 200 bike safety kits for kids that attended Children’s Celebration on July 30, 2016. The kits were given away to school age kids that participated in a Bike Safety Clinic.
