TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

75 bicycle helmets were given out in Tifton Thursday.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety presented them to the Tift Area Greenway Association.

The donation is part of the Bike Safety Month in Georgia and Tift Area Greenway promotes bike and pedestrian issues.

"Helmets are required for children under the age of 16 and we believe it's a good habit to build now and for a lifetime," said Harris Blackwood, Director of Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

"We're going to pass out helmets to those who don't have them if they come to participate in the rodeo," said Sharon Petzel, Tift Area Greenway.

The free bike rodeo is Saturday at the Tift County Recreation Department from 9 am to 11am.
