Students stayed a little while after school Thursday to learn some basic bicycle safety, as part of a Multi-Use Path Planning Committee and the Rec Extra After School programs.
Organizer Barb Rourk helped teach the three courses throughout the month. She says about 100 kids participated on average at each of the three schools they held courses. Thursday's was at Walnut School, and Rourk says this year's activities have really gone over well.

Rourk said education is important for kids to maintain good bicycle habits. More bike safety information will be available at this year's Keep It a Safe Summer event on May 22, at Lyon County Fairgrounds. Free bike helmets will also be given out.
