Organization hosting Bike Rodeo Saturday

Safe Routes to School will be hosting the second Bike Rodeo of the summer from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 23 in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

The rodeo will provide a basic foundation for safe bicycle riding, rules of the road and an opportunity for participants to practice bicycling skills. A bike mechanic will be available for quick bike checks to help ensure a safe and enjoyable riding experience.

Students are asked to bring a working bicycle, helmet, parent or guardian and an enthusiasm to learn about safe bicycling in the great outdoors.
