COLUMBIA - Saturday marks the first day of bike, walk, and wheel week. Columbia Parks and Recreation and PEDNET kicked off the event with bicyle training this morning.

More than 80 children attended the training outside of Shelter Insurance. Young bike riders learned several riding rules, like hand signals and safety training.

Volunteer Dayton Grover said the event teaches children vital skills.

"Just how to be a safe rider, learn some bike signals, and just learn the rules of the road," Grover said.

Bike, Walk and Wheel Week lasts until Saturday May 19, and most events are free.
