The West Plains Optimist Club promotes safe riding with the Bicycle Safety Fair. Safety techniques are presented with a focus on understanding traffic signs, and a bicycle training course allows young riders to practice. The fun often includes games and giveaways of bicycles and bike helmets.
The Bicycle Safety Fair usually takes place at Howell County Kids Fest at the West Plains Armory. The 2018 Kids Fest is currently planned for Saturday, May 12th.
