On Friday, March 25, the City of Santa Clarita presented a bicycle safety assembly at Cedarcreek Elementary School in Canyon Country with 500 students in attendance.
Roger Hasper, owner of Newhall Bicycle, led the presentation which focused on proper safety techniques and gear.
Roger Hasper has been volunteering his time entertaining and educating Santa Clarita kids about the importance of bicycle safety for about five years at City hosted assemblies.
The bicycle safety assemblies began in 2007, which was the first year the City of Santa Clarita was named as a host City for the Amgen Tour of California. Students also receive an Amgen Tour of California bicycle-safety themed coloring book. The Amgen Tour of California returns to Santa Clarita on May 22.
