Before it goes to the first bike ride of spring, wheels should be thoroughly checked. Together with the police explained Prussia mascot at the stadium, how to do it correctly. At its own tricycle light was broken.
With a stern look Erwin Henchman Prussia looks at Mascot Günter. “On your bike light is broken,” says the traffic police educator in safety vest. Günter can hardly believe it. His green-white bicycle which visited the foal regular elementary school students of the city was a few months in the cellar. Now that spring is around the corner, Günter has dug out his tricycle back and invited all fourth graders to have control with him in a car fixed bicycles. The police came by and looked to see if everything is in order. Was once something is defective, the children got immediate help from members of the ADFC. They repaired the wheels. However, the response to the traffic was extremely hard maul.
“Starting in April, I’ll try to ride a bike to work,” says Mathis Wassermann. The police chief is an enthusiastic hobby cyclist and just could not resist when he saw Junkers tricycle. He immediately jumped on the vehicle and raced behind up and down. A colleague of bike season commented: “The proceeds from pretty.” may never absent in Wassermann the helmet. “I am already fallen twice and was glad not to hurt me. That is why it is important to wear a helmet and reflective vest,” he told the children. Most of them follow suit. The cooperation with the primary schools is not new for Prussia and the police. “Since 2012 we are committed to be the first club for road safety,” said Junkers supervisor Nadine. For two years Günter attends the training bike the fourth school year. For as much use were he and the police of the children the price “The Red Knight”. The Transport Festival should serve to make the children and their parents aware that a bicycle before riding in the spring must be thoroughly checked to ensure that nothing happens.
“If it cannot itself, help shops in maintenance,” said Erwin. It is important, for example, that the chain is not rusted. The brakes and the lights should work. Importantly not only the brake hoses should be intact, but also the small rubber with which the brake touches the tire. Has a bike stood long, possibly air has to be pumped into the wheels. “One should renew it every five years. Even if he does not have any visible damage, fine hairline cracks may have formed. Then, the helmet is no longer safe,” explains traffic educators Henchman. Since it is not yet properly morning and evening light, bicycles must have at least two reflectors per tire. Alternatively, it also does reflective strips that are attached between the spokes.
The children who came to Junkers traffic hard, had little defects on its wheels. As a reward, there was for them yellow safety vests, where Prussia’s mascot is ready.
