South River police holding bicycle safety coloring contest through June 15

East Brunswick Patrolman Christian Rodriguez, teaches Ian Sperber, 2 1/2, of East Brunswick, how to ride a bike during the annual East Brunswick Police Department Bike Rodeo, held at Warnsdorfer Elementary School in East Brunswick, on May 20.

There is less than a week left to enter the South River Police Department’s Bicycle Safety Coloring Contest, with entries due by June 15.

Due to the restrictions in place, the police department is unable to hold its annual Bicycle Rodeo & Public Safety Day; however, it organized the virtual coloring contest.

To enter, print the coloring sheet, color it, and submit it by regular mail or email to the addresses indicated on the sheet.

Contest Rules are as follows:

  • Entries must be received by June 15.
  • This program is open to South River residents only.
  • Do not drop off entries in person.
  • Two bikes will be given away to the winners, one girl and one boy, of each age group.
  • Age groups are 3-4, 5-6, 7-9, 10-11, and 12-13.

The first 300 entries received will each receive a coupon for a free treat from one of three local businesses that are partnering with the police department to sponsor this program.

The police department also is giving away 10 brand new bikes to the coloring contest winners.

The police department has been posting a series of bicycle safety videos hosted by South River officers on its website and social media pages. The goal is to virtually teach South River’s children the bicycle safety lessons they would normally learn about at the police department’s annual Bicycle Rodeo & Public Safety Day.

Parents are asked to share and watch these videos with their children.

All entries will receive a bicycle safety certificate, indicating the participant has learned the proper safe riding techniques.
