Youngsters learned about bicycle safety and rules today at the 2013 Bicycle Rodeo in Harrisburg. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 were taught bicycle safety and awareness by police officers from the Swatara Township Police Department.

The bike rodeo is designed to inform kids of proper signaling when biking on roadways. “It’s a really great day or event for the kids to be in because not only do we do bike inspections, we do helmet checks, we go over safety rules and also the laws of the road,” said Corporal Brandon Pokrop.

Kids also had the chance to ride in a bike obstacle course during the event.

    I would like to say thank you to swatara police &Pat McKena from Target. For giving my children the bikes it was so nice of you all.also I would like to thank the police officer and the women who made the teddy bears for them. They love everything. Its been a long hall for my children. Not only losing everything n Nj but what is happening noe. No child should have to go threw what they are dealing with. as a parent it realy hurts.but there is nothing i can do. I am leaving it up to the Law.I wish to GOD i can change what happened to them but i cant. All i can hope for is that they will overcome this trematic situation. You All Have Been GREAT My family and i would like to say THANK YOU ALL
