Packers, Bellin Health help promote safe cycling



Event offers helmet fittings, bike safety course and giveaways

GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers, Bellin Health and the Center for Childhood Safety will team up on Tuesday, Aug. 13, to promote bike safety with a free bike helmet fitting and giveaway during a Green Bay Packers training camp session.

The bike safety event celebrates a Green Bay Packers time-honored tradition in which children bring their bikes to training camp and allow the football players to ride the bikes back to the locker room.

The safety event will take place from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Lambeau Field parking lot near the Oneida Gate at the Tundra Tailgate Zone.

Children can take part in the free bike helmet fitting between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. They also can take part in a bike obstacle course from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Free bike helmets will be available for the first 500 children or while supplies last. For those who have helmets, representatives will be on hand to check sizing and make adjustments. Safety experts will educate children and parents alike on the importance of wearing bike helmets.

Green Bay Police, De Pere Police and other public safety departments will help teach safe biking skills.
