The Elk Valley Detachment of the RCMP in conjunction with Teck Coal is proud to announce the return of the Caught Being Good – Bicycle Safety Program.

Building on the success of last year’s program, the RCMP has partnered with Teck Coal to encourage and recognize safe bicycle practices in the communities of Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford.

Police officers, with the assistance of local firefighters will be out on community roadways over the next months looking for individuals who are serving as positive role models for others in the area of bicycle safety.  Individuals who are found wearing a properly fitting bicycle helmet and abiding by safe bicycle practices will be stopped and provided with an entry voucher for a draw which will be held in the first week of October.

At the end of the campaign period, one adult and one youth bicyclist in each community will be recognized by the RCMP and Teck Coal for their efforts to promote a safer community by promoting bicycle safety while operating their bicycle in their community.

Adult winners will receive a gift certificate for a nights stay at the Island Lake Lodge including dinner and breakfast while the youth winner will receive a gift certificate for $500 to be used toward the purchase of a new bike.
