Bike Rodeo

Every participating child has the opportunity to participate in an event that will give him or her a chance to learn about, and practice, safe bicycling skills. The Bicycle Rodeo includes a safety inspection and a series of skills stations directly related to everyday bicycling situations. Participants will practice starting and stopping, the safe way to exit a driveway, how to look for traffic, negotiate an intersection, and avoid common road hazards.

*Texas Medical Association’s Hard Hats for Little Heads program promotes exercise and teaches children and their parents about the importance of wearing a helmet when bicycling.

The TAFP has joined with TMA in this effort to promote safety and exercise.

Hard Hats for Little Heads is made possible through a grant from TMA Foundation thanks to top donors — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Prudential, and an anonymous foundation — and gifts from physicians and their families.
