Beacon cycling set for next Saturday
Pan American gold medallist Christopher Sellier and double Junior Pan Am silver medallist Quincy Alexander will be giving lessons in bike handling and road safety to over 100 young cyclists when Beacon Insurance Company Limited hosts its seventh annual Cycling Smart Programme at King George V Park in St Clair next week Saturday. This was announced at the event’s launch at Mike’s Bikes on O’Connor Street in Woodbrook yesterday.
The programme, part of a collaboration between Beacon, Phillips Promotions and the Traffic Police, is targeted at children from ages five to 13, who will also be able to interact with motor cycle police officers. Cycle Smart will feature several fun activities such as the cycle limbo, cycle see-saw, ramps, obstacle courses and scratch races to build confidence, skills and balance. Youngsters will also be taught to use hand signals and understand traffic signs. There will also be lessons involving speed bumps and damp patches.
Beacon’s Manager of Corporate Communications Kristian Kong said that the company would be hosting similar programmes in Arima and San Fernando in the following months. Registration for the programme, which will be available to the first 150 entrants, may be done at www.beacon.co.tt. The first 100 will receive free t-shirts. Children will be required to bring their own bikes. While orientation will begin at 2 pm, participants are recommended to arrive at 1.15 pm. For further information call 624-MIKE.
