Contact: Nicole Taylor, Environmental Protection Specialist/Safety Officer, 508-957-0741
In an effort to reduce incidence and severity of bike accidents at Cape Cod National Seashore, the Bicycle Safety Committee will host its fifth annual "Bicycle Safety at the Seashore" events on Thursday, July 24, at Province Lands Visitor Center, Provincetown, and on August 1, at Salt Pond Visitor Center, Eastham. Open to the public from 9 AM to noon, these events will feature helmet fittings, fun activities for kids, bicycle safety checks, and educational displays. Prizes for participation, such as helmets, bike accessories, raffles, and coupons may be available while supplies last. Educational topics will include how to fit a helmet properly, preparing for a ride with an ABC bicycle quick check, the consequences of a bicycle crash, as well as other interesting facts about bicycle safety at the seashore. Join us for these fun-filled opportunities and your chance to walk away with information that will keep you and your family safe.
The bike shuttle, a cooperative venture between the national seashore and Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, will be at the event on August 1 from 9 AM to 10:30 AM.
The Cape Cod National Seashore's Bicycle Safety Committee intends these events to be one of many future educational opportunities focused on promoting awareness about bicycle safety in the park. Participation and support is provided by Arnold's Bike Shop, P-town Bikes, Little Capistrano Bike Shop, Idle Times Bike Shop, Ben and Jerry's, and Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
