What is a Bike Rodeo?

A Bike Rodeo is a bicycle safety clinic featuring bike safety inspections (and optionally quick tune-ups), and a safety lecture about the rules of the road (10 to 15 minutes). This is followed by a ride on a
miniature "chalk street" course set up in a parking lot where young cyclists are shown where and how to apply the rules. Optional activities include Helmet fitting, prizes and drawings, and in some cases commercial activities such as booths set up by bike shops etc. The main focus of a bike rodeo is Cycling Safety for young cyclists, ages kindergarten to 10 or so.

What will Children Learn?

  • Stop at Signals and Stop signs
  • Stop, or slow to a crawl before entering any roadway or at blind intersections
  • Slow vehicles keep right
  • Ride with traffic, not against it
  • Signal your turns (they will practice this)
  • Ride predictably, no swerving or curb jumping
  • Stay off the sidewalks – adjusted for local laws etc.
  • Most importantly – Just Pay Attention!
