Detroit students finish safety program, get free bikes
Nearly 500 Detroit second-grade students have received new bikes, helmets, locks and bells after completing a bicycle safety program.
The bikes and other items were given Tuesday to the students by the Detroit Red Wings, Chevrolet and the Detroit Public Schools Foundation during a special assembly at Little Caesars Arena.
The students attend 10 schools in the Detroit Public Schools Community District. They have been practicing riding and learning road safety since April in their physical education classes as part of the Road & Bicycle Program.
The program is part of a long-term community impact investment between Chevrolet and the Red Wings within the Detroit area.
