In 2019, the Amesbury Rotary Club and Police Department rebooted Bike Safety Day (BSD) thanks to a District Granted supported by contributions from the Rotary Foundation.  And then in 2020 the pandemic hit, and we were in lockdown.  But the good news is that on a sunny Saturday in May 2021 we were able to be outside and reinstate BSD once again.

The Rotary Club provided free bike helmets and fitted all participants, conducted a free equipment check, and helped children complete a bike rodeo course.  On the course, children were able to practice their skills and learn about riding their bicycle safely.  
At the completion of the course, students were awarded a certificate of completion and a goodie bag.  The goodie bag included information about road safety, Rotary, and a 4-Way Test coin.

As a special treat, all participants were entered into a drawing with a chance to win a bicycle; one for boys and one for girls.  It was wonderful to see Bike Safety Day start again as we all begin our return to normalcy.  All of this because of our contributions to the Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund.
