Bicycle ABC's

Durham East 4-H - Bike Club
(Posted April 17, 2015)

The first meeting of the 4-H Bike Club took place at Evergreen Farm and Garden on Monday April 13, 2015. Seventeen kids showed up to learn about bike safety and play “bicycle tic tac toe”. After some safety rules and tips and a round of the game, we had elections for the 4 positions of President, Vice President, Secretary and News Reporter. It was a very lively election session complete with 2 and 3 way ties, drum rolls and suspense! We finally got a board that consisted of Ben, Alex, Corbin and me. We talked about bike safety and rules of the road, and went over proper clothing and essential gear for riding. We inspected our helmets to check for cracks, date and official approval. Also, we labelled the parts of a bike and went over the ABC’s of bike maintenance—air, brakes, and chain. Everyone is looking forward to our mountain biking rides through the forest and bike paths, scheduled for the coming weeks!
