Rediscover Your Bike 2011

Rediscover Your Bike 2012, is rolling bigger than ever in Windsor-Essex County.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit and local community partners are encouraging everyone to get in motion and “Rediscover Your Bike” on one of the any trail systems in Windsor and Essex County.

This year Rediscover Your Bike is coming to four towns around Windsor-Essex County, with events planned to help people of all ages gear up to ride their bikes safely this Summer.

Participants will be entitled to lots of free bike giveaways, and an entry into a prize draw. Participants can also learn about helmet safety, bike safety, and healthy food options through this event. Helmet giveaways and helmet fitting, bike safety checks, bike rodeo for kids, and guided trail rides will be offered too.

Organizers say that with so many vehicles on the road, it’s important for everyone to learn to ride safely. A critical part of bicycle safety is wearing a helmet. Bicycle helmets save lives and are to be worn by riders under 18 years of age. In the event of a crash, helmets reduce the risk of head injury by up to 85 percent (Safe Kids Canada) when fitted properly and worn correctly.
