XENIA — Members of the Greene County Parks and Trails (GCP&T) Sentinel program and GCP&T Rangers recently held their week-long bike camp to teach young cyclists how to enjoy and be safe on the 62 miles of paved trails managed by the park agency.

The camp participants spent each day practicing safety drills and learning the rules of cycling at Xenia Station before heading out on the trails for a ride.

All participants received a graduation certificate upon completion of the camp.
