DANVILLE, Va. – On Friday, your kid will have a chance to learn bike safety from the experts.

The Danville Police Department is hosting a ‘Pedal With Police’ event at the Danville Community Market for kids between the ages of eight and 16. There, kids will be able to participate in obstacle courses, bike races and learn about bike safety from the Danville Police Department Bike Patrol.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and you can register on-site from 10 to 10:45 a.m.

Entry is free but kids have to bring their own bike. There will also be an opportunity to win prizes.

“A big issue we see here in Danville are kids riding their bikes down the middle of the street so we want to make sure they are staying safe while on their bikes, while having fun, but also keeping our drivers safe, “ said Ashtyn Foddrell, community relations liaison for Danville Police Department.
