Bicycle Education and

Registration program

A few months ago, Deputy Ken Yanecko transferred to Avalon Station.  He is well known throughout the County for being the Sheriff’s Department’s lead patrol bicycle training instructor.  Several years ago, Deputy Yanecko created the BEAR program.

The program went countywide, then statewide and finally became a national program.  The program recycles confiscated bicycles and offers them to children who participate and graduate from the program.

The children who participate in the program learn about bicycle repair and restoration, as well as advanced bicycle safety skills, all the while reinforcing the importance of respect, good citizenship and other positive attributes.

Avalon Station’s first class graduated on July 5.  The students who completed the class got the opportunity to ride their new bicycles, which they helped construct, in the Fourth of July Parade alongside of Deputy Yanecko.

We were all happy to see this extraordinary program come to Avalon and be able to offer it to the boys and girls in the community.  Our second class will begin later in the month.  Parents who would like to sign their children up for the program are encouraged to contact Deputy Ken Yanecko at Avalon Station.
