Safety Bike Rodeo
May 5, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Rotary Club of Adel and the Adel Police Department are pleased to host the Safety Bike Rodeo on Saturday, May 5 from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
The event will be held in the Adel City Hall Parking Lot, which is just north of 301 S. 10th Street and the Raccoon River Valley Trail. The inclement weather date is Sunday, May 6.
Children ages 5-8 are invited to bring their bicycles and helmets along with their parent(s) to participate in the 1st Annual Safety Bike Rodeo.
The event will promote safe bicycle-riding habits and the reduction of accidents involving children. This come-and-go event is free and offers interactive activities for children.
Bikes will be inspected and helmets checked for fit before children receive safety instruction and ride through the course. If the child does not have a bike helmet, a loaner helmet will be fitted to use during the event.
Children completing the safety course will receive a certificate of completion, bike safety information, a Rotary key-chain flashlight, and a bottle of water.
Other activities at the Safety Bike Rodeo include tours of a police car and a fire engine and the opportunity to visit with an Adel Police Officer and an Adel Firefighter.
The Adel Public Library will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., featuring a display of books about bicycles. In addition, the Raccoon River Valley Trail is nearby for riding or walking.
The First Annual Safety Bike Rodeo is made possible through the generosity and support of the City of Adel, the Adel Police Department, the Adel Fire Department, the Rotary Club of Adel, Bike World, and Fareway.
