Cub Scouts from Pack 59 Earn Bicycle Badge

On Sunday, October 16, 2011, a small group of cub scouts and parents from Bear Den Pack 59 in Mar Vista came to the Santa Monica Bicycle Campus to learn basic bicycle safety from League Cycling Instructor, Ron Durgin of Sustainable Streets.

After reviewing helmet safety and completing an ABC Quick Check on their bikes, the scouts practiced riding in a straight line, turning and signaling.  The scouts then practiced yielding to cross traffic when entering a road or path from a driveway.  The beach bicycle path provided a perfect scenario for these young riders to learn this important lesson.

We finished the day with some thrilling turtle races and some tasty Clif Bar snacks.  Thank you Pack 59 scouts and parents for the opportunity to help the boys earn their bicycle badge.
