Bike Registration and Children’s Bike Rodeo May 17!

Do you want to have your bicycle registered with the police department in case it is lost or stolen?

If so, please stop by the Children’s Bike Rodeo Saturday, May 17, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Callaway parking lot, located at the corner of West Trinity Place and Commerce Drive in downtown Decatur. Decatur Police will record the identifying information for your bicycle, apply a decal and photograph your bicycle so that in the event it is stolen, the needed information will be on file. Also, in the event the bicycle is found, it can be reunited with its owner. The process takes just a few minutes.

Even if you are not attending the bike rodeo, please bring your bicycles by and get them registered.

Bikes are Registered and Children Learn Bike Safety

Thanks to everyone who came out for our first Bike Registration and Safety Fair held last Saturday. The Decatur Police Department registered 40 bikes and lots of children (and adults) rode the safety course and learned about bicycle safety. Thanks to our volunteers, City Police, Firefighters, and Active Living Staff for making the event a success. Thanks also to Bicycle South who provided free bicycle safety and helmet checks.

We plan to do another Bicycle Registration in early 2012 and will do more Safety Training in the spring. In the meantime, enjoy photos from the event as well as a video created by Hugh Simpson. Hugh has created a website to promote walking and biking in Decatur and Avondale Estates.
