Market at the Square Bike Rodeo

Description

The C-U SRTS Project Bicycle Rodeo is an opportunity for parents and children to learn how to be safe when bicycling and to practice some basic bicycling skills. The Bicycle Rodeo will include:
-A Welcome Station for parents to sign-in and get a report card for each child as well as safety information and a Champaign-Urbana Area Bicycle Map to take home
-A Helmet Station for helmet fitting and sales ($10/helmet)
-A Bike Inspection Station for bicycle safety checks and information on bicycle sizing
-Skills Stations that will include activities such as starting and stopping, turning and yielding, scanning and signaling

Every child who participates in the Bicycle Rodeo is a winner! Each rider gets a completed Report Card that indicates what skills they practiced and if they need to practice any skills further. For parents it is an opportunity to learn about the ways they can help their children to be safe while bicycling. Most importantly, the Bike Rodeo is fun! Riding a bike provides children with a sense of freedom and accomplishment and C-U SRTS Project want to help kids have fun and be safe.

No experience is needed to volunteer!
