What is a Bike Rodeo?
A Bike Rodeo is a fun, active event for elementary students to learn biking and safety skills in a safe and comfortable environment. Safe Routes to School staff sets up various agility courses on school grounds for students to practice important skills necessary to ride a bike safely and confidently. Staff also inspects students’ bikes and makes sure their bike helmets fit them properly.
Kindergarten through 6th grade students must be able to ride a bike without assistance to participate. Students should bring their own bike and helmet to the Bike Rodeo, but bikes and helmets can be provided, if needed. Bike Rodeos last 1-2 hours depending on the number of participants. Schools are required to provide 6-10 volunteers to help the event run smoothly.
