Testing the brakes

Posted: Updated:

Young bikers were learning the rules of the road in South Burlington Saturday.

Kids who brought their bikes to the Dorset St. Park received free checks for their brakes, chains, and tires.

Helmets also got an inspection. If the tykes could pass the obstacle course, and had a well-fitted helmet, they received a personalized bike license photo.

Chrissy Keating of the Vt. Children's Hospital said Saturday, "We are trying to prevent injuries here, a lot of people bike in the summer especially families here in Burlington and so we want to make sure they are as safe as possible before they hit the roads."

After kids proved to be ready to roll they could also pick out free stickers and a goody bag.

SafeKids Vermont and Local Motion helped organize the event.
