CHICAGO (AP) _ Chicago is putting on a week-long bicycle safety day camp as part of its efforts to promote cycling in the city.
 
About 80 children are participating this week and will receive new bicycles and helmets that were donated.

 
They'll get tips on safe cycling, route selection and map reading.
 
The pilot program was the idea of four members of the City Council who recently observed a similar bike safety camp for children in Denmark and decided to bring it to Chicago.
