The Bicycle Rodeo encourages children to learn how to safely ride their bikes in a mock-roadway, kid-sized setting.
Safety Town features roads with turning lane arrows; a railroad crossing; two one-way tunnels to teach children the dangers of one-way streets; and timed traffic lights.
Participants of all ages will be evaluated and given feedback on their own bicycle-handling abilities, after proper bicycle safety skills are demonstrated.
Participants are required to bring their own helmets and bicycles; both will be inspected for safety.
