On Saturday, September 28th, from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM, the Fillmore Police Citizen Patrol and Ventura County Sheriff’s Office teamed up with local organizations to present a bicycle rodeo to more than one hundred Piru children.
The Bicycle Rodeo was held at the San Salvador Mission in Piru and included a bicycle safety course, free helmets and fitting assistance for every child who attended, bicycle tune-ups and raffle prizes. The Sheriff’s Office also had displays from the Sheriff’s Bomb Squad, SWAT, K9 and Mounted Volunteer Units. The Ventura County Fire Department also participated in the event.
More than 125 Piru children attended and participated in the safety course designed by BikeVentura. The safety of our children is a top priority, and the children who attended the event learned the basics in rules of the road for bicyclists and in bicycle safety.
Sponsors of the event included the San Salvador Mission, BikeVentura, Piru Pizza, California Resource Corporation, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Foundation and the Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s Association.
