The money that SETHBC raises from the tour will be used to expand our educational and safety programs.
We hold children s bicycle safety rodeos throughout the Golden Triangle.One of our most important safety principles is that everyone adults and children should wear a helmet at all times when riding.We also provide a new bicycle helmet for every child attending a rodeo. After properly fitting the helmet, we teach the children proper riding etiquette on a specially constructed safety course. For more information, please see our Web site at www.funtrails.org. SETHBC has been able to expand this program by giving classroom safety seminars in Golden Triangle elementary schools.
