Bike Rodeo

What is a Bike Rodeo?

What are the Benefits?

Learning how to ride a bike safely and confidently can lead to a healthy lifestyle activity kids can enjoy for the rest of their lives. Hosting a Bike Rodeo is the first step to teaching kids how much fun biking can be. In addition to learning the “rules of the road”, students learn how to:

  • Avoid obstacles and yield to traffic
  • Brake and improve balance
  • Use proper hand signals

A fun, interactive, and educational event to teach youth how to be safer pedestrians, bicyclists, and scooter riders. Students will walk, ride, and roll through Safe Moves City with intersections, crosswalks, bike lanes, traffic signs & signals, railroad tracks, railroad signs, cars, houses, and stores. Safe Moves City, a Solano Safe Routes to School partner, simulates traffic hazards facing youth as they walk, ride and roll to and from school and destinations in
their community.

K-8 students should bring their own bike or scooter and must be able to ride without assistance. Signed waivers and helmets are required. Students without a bike will receive education and participate as pedestrians.
