The Portland Police Department wants kids to be safe on the roads and trails - especially when they're on two wheels.
On Wednesday, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Preble Street Extension parking lot (across from Hannaford at the start of the Back Cove Trail), the department will be holding a bike helmet giveaway for children who live in Portland.
Young riders can pick up a helmet, register their bike and learn some safety tips from police officers. There will be other free activities during the event, including a bike rodeo and the always-popular Dunk-a-Cop tank.
There are a limited number of helmets available, so get there early. And ride safe on the way.
