Capital Spokes Bike Rally & Rodeo: A Grand Success!

Print Email

It took quite a few players to make Sunday's Bike Rally/Rodeo a success. First and foremost, OSCA's Traffic & Safety Committee who made cycle training & safety part of their strategic plan, David Chernushenko's office (David & Ian Grabina) who supported us from the very beginning, our community partners in the Glebe, Old Ottawa East, Heron Park who welcomed our proposal in the blink of an eye, the City of Ottawa's Safer Roads Program and the staff at OSCA. There are many nameless volunteers who by their very spirit and encouragement made this event worth the effort: the Beaver Scouts, Hopewell parents & staff, our children, grandchildren, their friends & families, the paramedics, police, Can-Bike trainers, the folks from the Cycling Safety program who, with the Beaver Scouts, saved the day with obstacle courses, a jellied brain, helmet fittings, and a bike wash! 

And then of course, we must not forget all the cyclists and their families who are so very keen to prepare their kids for a safer fun ride in our communities and the City's streets.
