PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

I would like to thank everybody who contributed to the success of our 2008 Bike Safety Week and Bike Rodeo. The Ayer Police Department, in a partnership with the Page Hilltop Elementary School, educated approximately 600 kids in grades K-5 on bike safety. We also worked together on holding a bike rodeo at the end of the week-long program, where we registered and inspected bicycles and put the kids through a bicycle safety course meant to help them sharpen their riding skills.

I would like to thank Page Hilltop health teacher Shari Matthews and the Page Hilltop school staff for their support for this program. The bike rodeo would not have been successful if not for the assistance of the Ayer Fire Department, Central Production Facility (Pepsi), Archer’s Mobil, McDonald’s restaurants, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, and all the local businesses who agreed to post our flier to advertise the event.

I also extend our thanks and appreciation to Nashoba Publishing, the Public Spirit editor Kate Walsh and reporter Gayle Simone, who not only helped us promote the event but also donated needed supplies and materials to ensure the day’s success.

It is our hope that by promoting bicycle safety now, both bicyclists and motorists will have a happy and safe summer while sharing the roads together.

Sincerely,

SGT. JOHN MACDONALD

Ayer Police Department
