*More about the Bike Rodeo: the goal is to provide an opportunity for kids to learn, practice, and demonstrate their bicycle handling skills in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere.  There will be an informative introduction on bike safety, stations on fitting helmets safely, changing a tire, direction signals, and finally there will be a Bicycle Obstacle Course! Children must bring their own bikes and helmets.
