City's Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors Host Kids CAN-BIKE Festival
  
The launch of the Kids CAN-BIKE Festival Month happens at St. Roch Separate
School, 174 Duncanwoods Drive, Wednesday, June 14 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Hosted by the City of Toronto's Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors, the Kids
CAN-BIKE Festival introduces key bike handling skills to children who are
beginning to ride independently. Children learn about proper equipment such as
a helmet, clothing and a properly fitted bicycle, along with a bicycle safety
check. With instruction and assistance from the Ambassadors, children practice
straight-line riding, shoulder checking and signaling, as well as braking and
starting.

This year's team of 20 Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors will be raising public
awareness about cycling safety and culture in the city, through training
programs, workshops and community events. The Ambassadors raise sensitivity to
the cycling environment by providing road and trail safety information for all
road and trail users -- cyclists, pedestrians, motorists, and in-line skaters.

CAN-BIKE courses are offered from June to September, throughout Toronto
communities. For more information on other CAN-BIKE courses, call 416-392-1311
or visit their Web site at http://www.city.toronto.on.ca/cycli ng.

Date: Wednesday, June 14, 2000
Time: 1 to 3 p.m.
Location: St. Roch Separate School, 174 Duncanwoods Drive, (Islington
Ave. N. & Finch Ave. W.). Phone 416-393-5320.
