The “Celebrate Portland Festival” includes a Bike Rodeo!
The Celebrate Portland Festival, on Saturday, July 7, 2012, in Payson Park, will include a Bike Rodeo!
Designed to teach and encourage kids from age 4-10 to ride bikes safely, the bike safety rodeo will include a helmet check, a bike mechanical check, and the chance to ride in a closed traffic skills course that teaches the basic rules of the road. Additional activities like the “slow race”, bike balancing, and straight line riding practice will be included.
The Rodeo will run from 11-2 pm. It will be cancelled in the event of rain.
Kids interested in participating must bring a parent, (who can sigh a waiver form), a bicycle and a helmet to the event!
The bike rodeo will be run by Bicycle Coalition of Maine staff and volunteers.
