Second annual youth bike workshop set for May 15

Registration deadline is May 8

PRINCETON — University of Illinois Extension, in partnership with the Princeton Bicycle/Pedestrian Commission, will offer a free youth bicycle workshop during Bike Safety Month.

Youths ages 6-18 are invited to attend this fun, informative workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, at the Perry Memorial Hospital employee parking lot, corner of Park Avenue and Fifth Street in Princeton.

Those in attendance will be led through multiple stations to learn about safety, maintenance and more from Princeton bicycle patrol officers, Bicycle Commission members and bicycle enthusiasts. A meal will be provided at the conclusion of the workshop.

“I am ecstatic to extend the invitation to area youth to attend this popular event,” Danielle Saletzki, University of Illinois Extension 4-H and Youth Program coordinator, said.

“Participants will be able to acquire knowledge and skills that can be utilized as a family recreational activity,” she said.

Interested youths may register by visiting http://go.illinois.edu/bikeworkshop or by calling the University of Illinois Extension office at 815-875-2878.

Space is limited to the first 25 registered. The deadline to register is May 8.

Illinois 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization in Illinois, challenging youths to “learn by doing” with fun, hands-on activities that teach skills for living.
