McMurchy Community Bike Clinic25 Jul 2016, Posted by Brampton Cycling, Brampton Kids on Bikes, Past Event Cycling, Region of Peel Cycling in
The community that gathers together to repair their bikes is a strong community.
Stephen organized McMurchy Community Bike Clinic with help of former Boys and Girls Club McHardy Court Bike Clinic 2014 grads on Jun 25th.
Region of Peel supplied bike stickers and prizes. BikeBrampton contributed with their Bike Intersection game, helmet prizes, and the One-Metre safety banner, thanks to a grant from Ministry of Transportation’s Road Safety Challenge. City of Brampton supplied Brampton Curling Club parking lot, the perfect place for cyclists and the repairs to spread out on the beautiful summer day.
Young cyclists learned about road safety skills like how to correctly wear a helmet. Correct answers were rewarded with draw tickets for bike helmets.
Many cyclists set their seat too low, which creates strain on knees! Learn to ride safely with greater ease!
Children received Peel Walk+Roll stickers, book marks, and bike chain bracelets. City of Brampton Trail Maps are always a huge hit!
Our BikeBrampton lucky helmet winners answered the questions and had their draw ticket selected. They pose in front of our One-Metre Law banner, created by BikeBrampton with MTO Road Safety Challenge grant money. Did you know that motorists have to leave at least one metre of space to safely pass a cyclist on the road? It’s the law!
All the volunteers pitch in to fix this tire.
We were thrilled to see the bike mechanic grads from the December 2014 program, here, and giving back to their community.
