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.
