NORWAY – The Norway Police Department and Norway Recreation Department are teaming up to offer a free bicycle safety clinic from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, May 9, at the Norway Municipal Complex.

Bicyclists, young and old, can register their bicycle with the police department. A digital photo of the bicycle will be incorporated onto the registration. Owners will receive a registration, and a copy will be retained by the police department for future reference.

Art Hladik of Agape Bicycle Shop will be on hand to demonstrate a pre-ride safety check and routine maintenance. The clinic will teach safe bike riding skills and give inform on Maine laws concerning bicycles.

The final step will be a chaperoned “road test” to familiarize bicyclists with the new bike lane on Beal Street and proper etiquette when sharing the sidewalks with pedestrians.

Certificates will be issued to successful participants. The event is open to anyone interested in learning about safe bike riding.

Anyone wanting more information can call the Norway Police Department at 743-5303 or the Norway Recreation Department at 743-6651.

The Recreation Department will also have a table set up with information about summer programs for all ages. Anyone who has flyers, brochures or registration forms they would like to add to the table should contact Recreation Director Deb Partridge, 743-6651 or [email protected]
