Volunteers Needed for Bike Safety Education

The Spring Bike Safety Education Season has begun and this is a great time to help educate the future cyclists of Eugene.

Each Fall and Spring the City of Eugene Recreation program and Safe Routes to School teaches hundreds of middle school students a 10 hour bike safety education class. On the last day of the course our students go on a community ride around their neighborhood streets. We take anywhere from 30-40 students out on the road. It is very important to us that we provide a safe and fun ride. The more volunteers we have joining the more smoothly the rides go.  Thanks for helping to create safe & confident cyclists.
This fall we are reaching more schools than ever- Eight (of our 13 total goal schools in Eugene/Springfield). To make this happen we need you!
