Second Annual Bicycle Safety Festival
Lafayette Consolidated Government, in partnership with Bike Lafayette and Broussard & David, LLC, will host the second annual Bicycle Safety Festival on Saturday, May 20 at Parc Sans Souci from 9 a.m. until noon. Bicyclists of all ages are invited to participate in the free event which will feature bicycle safety instruction, bike helmet fitting, and bicycle inspections. The aim of this event is to help cyclists and motorists become more knowledgeable about bicycle safety and the rules of the road. As Lafayette embraces a more bicycle-oriented mindset, bicycle awareness is becoming even more essential. Through this approach, we can make the roads safer for all users. The Festival organizers hope to make cycling in Lafayette safer for everyone by offering education and safety equipment to attendees. Free youth and adult, certified bicycle helmets will be given away to the first 300 participants, as well as free bike lights and tee shirts while supplies last. Festival goers who complete a short bicycle safety course, led by trained volunteers, will be eligible to win a free bicycle valued at $300, courtesy of Hub City Cycles and Bike Lafayette. Attendees who ride to the Festival or bring their bikes can register for free with the Lafayette Police Department, compliments of Broussard & David, LLC. In the event a bicycle is lost or stolen, registration makes owner identification easier when the bike is found or recovered. This family-friendly event will also include fun activities like a bike obstacle course for kids, complimentary food and refreshments, and musical entertainment by Melissa Stevenson and the Acadiana School of the Arts band.
