Fourth-grade students at Burbank Elementary School learned about professional bicycle racing Tuesday and received new bicycle helmets, too. The city of Modesto’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department handed out the helmets after the students learned all about the 2008 Amgen Tour of California bicycle race that will be wheeling through Modesto next month. The Modesto leg of the eight-day Tour de France-style race will be Feb. 20.
