What is a bike rodeo? A bike rodeo helps teach students the importance of riding a bicycle safely.
What to do: Bring your child's bike and helmet. Ride with your child to school, drop off bikes and helmets in the bike rack or join us in the back parking lot after school with your child's bike and helmet. Bicycle racks are located in the back parking lot next to the BOE building. Please be sure to lock your bike! Your child will not need to stay for the entire time. Come and go at any time during the event. Free helmets will be available on a limited basis. Any child without a proper helmet or working bicycle will not be allowed to participate in the on-bike riding skills.
