Did you know about 50% of all cyclists who die in accidents are under the age of 16 and the most common place for car/bike crashes to happen is in a residential neighborhood on quiet streets?

A Bicycle rodeo is designed to teach bicycle safety skills and to educate children that when riding a bike they must follow the same rules of the road as a vehicle. The sponsors would like to give your child an opportunity to complete a 6-10 station bicycle rodeo. Using bikes (provided), children will to learn to be safe bicyclists and pedestrians.

Florida State Law states bicycle riders under 16 MUST wear a bicycle safety helmet or they can receive a fine. Please bring your child’s helmet for a helmet fitting. Limited quanities of goodie bags and certificates will also be given away!
