BICYCLE SAFETY RODEO PLANNED • ....... IN COVINGTO ..... ...... ..... ';.~i~ .. " ,,~ ..., ..... ,. . A Bicycle safety Rodeo will be staged for all 4-H club mem- bers of Covington County, Thursday, March 16, 9:30 a.m. at the Andalusia Coliseum. The purpose of this event is to teach Covington County youth NO._, safe riding skills and basic traffic rules. Most of the laws concerning correct bicycle riding also per- tain to driving an automobile. Today when "having a set of wheels" is no longer a luxury, young people learning safe rid- ing practices will move easily to the driving of a more power- ful piece of equipment. Four-H members and parents from all over Covington County are encouraged to come to this special event. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., 4-H'ers will learn the basic rules of the road and then view a film on Bicycle Safety. Following the film, a discussion and demonstration will be pre- sented on the mechanical con- dition of bicycles. All the skill in the world could not assure a rider's safety if the bicycle he is riding is in poor mechanical condition and im- properly equipped. Following the safety demon- strations the safety contest will begin. Riders will be judged on both skill and safe operation. For more information call the, County ExtensionService. 222-3712.
