2 weeks ago Constable Jordan Hamlyn picked up the donated items for the program. You might have seen the article in the Sooke mirror. The intent is for the RCMP to stop youth who are seen cycling around the area and give them little gifts for practising safe cycling. Simple things like wearing a helmet, signalling or making eye contact with drivers will get them gifts like a free ice cream, video rental, or bike inspection, and for those caught cycling at night witout lights we have some flashing lights. Hopefully I will hear from Jordan soon as to how the program is going.
This is the first post of the Juan De Fuca Cycling Coalition. Hopefully this will work well as a venue for disseminating and sharing information. I am new to blogging so it might take me a while to get it rolling smoothly. Stand by for updates and links.
