Special to the LVN | LVN

On Saturday, more than 50 children participated in the third annual Fallon Youth Bike Tour.

The event, which was hosted by the Churchill County Cyclists, did a 2-mile loop starting from Venturacci Park as a part of Bicycle Safety Awareness Month.

The youths rode between two and 12 miles with assistance from Naval Air Station Fallon’s Search and Rescue team, the Fallon Police Department and the club.

Several children who participated in the ride learned about bicycling hand signals and earned Boy Scout merit badges, which they used during the ride.

The Churchill County Cyclist club is a non-for-profit club made up of road cyclists, mountain bike riders, triathletes and leisurely bicyclists.

The club, in partnership with the Churchill County Parks and Recreation Department, also puts on The No Hill 100 in October. They work together to organize group rides and support cross-country rides, such as The Oat Bran Ride.

The club welcomes all cycling enthusiast and information can be found on Facebook and Meetup.
