 Families are invited to a CycleSafe family day on Saturday 11 May, to mark Road Safety Awareness Week (6 – 12 May).

The event will take place between 10am and 2pm at Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Longfield Centre, Stevenage.
It is being organised by Hertfordshire County Council's Fire and Rescue Service and community safety volunteers in partnership with Hertfordshire Police and Bikeability.
The volunteer-led event will include plenty of fun activities for all the family, plus an opportunity for one lucky youngster to win a brand new bike, courtesy of Halfords.
Hertfordshire County Council’s Bikeability instructors will be on hand to provide taster cycling education sessions; cycle safety checks; and road safety advice for all the family. As well as this, the police will be offering property security marking and entry onto the national ‘immobilise’ online database and Halfords will be providing cycle maintenance workshops and giving out vouchers.
There will also be Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue’s FireBike, guided tours of a fire engine, an aerial ladder platform display, water target activities and more.
Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service and the community safety volunteers are dedicated to ensuring that residents are equipped with the knowledge they need to keep themselves safe on the road, whether in a car, as a pedestrian or a cyclist. This event will enable them to spread key safety messages in a fun and friendly environment.
Anyone is welcome to come along; from parents looking to increase their child’s confidence on a bike to young people looking for some road safety advice before getting their first moped or motorbike.
