Save the date: March 21 (Fort Myers) and March 23 (Cape Coral)
The Lee County Tax Collector Office, in partnership with BikeWalkLee, will host a pair of cycling safety and information seminars this week.
Dan Moser, of BikeWalkLee (bikewalklee.blogspot.org), will be available to answer questions and provide information on bike maps and safety, as well as talk on the basics of safe bike riding routes, sharing the road and the importance of always having the proper visible safety equipment.
The sessions are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 21 at the Fort Myers branch of the tax collector office, 2480 Thompson St., and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 23 at the Cape Coral branch, 1039 SE 9th Ave.
Moser, long-time bicycle/pedestrian advocate and traffic safety professional, will conduct the events at the entrance of each of the locations.
“Most bicycling accidents involving kids can be avoided by following simple road rules and having visible safety equipment,” says Cape Coral Police Department PAO Phil Mullen, who recently partnered with LCTC and FDOT at Christa McAuliffe Charter Elementary School in Cape Coral for a bicycle safety presentation to third, fourth and fifth graders.
