Importance of Helmets
To help the girls understand the importance of wearing a properly fitted bike helmet, Sergeant Kockler climbed up a 10 foot ladder and dropped two cantaloupes onto the asphalt, one in a bike helmet and one by itself.
The melon protected by the bike helmet remained intact, while the other had multiple cracks!
After the lecture, the girls rode their bikes through a variety of different cone patterns designed to help improve slow speed turning movements, stopping, and proper hand signaling. The girls had a great time, and so did we!
And Remember, ALWAYS wear a helmet when biking.
