Here is a chance to put those together.

It is Bicycle Rodeo season again! As a lead up to Bike to School / Work weeks the city is hosting bike rodeos at select schools through out the district.

The Kelowna Area Cycling Coalition will be helping out with these great events as they did last year.

—————————————————————————————-
A Bike Rodeo is usually a bicycle safety clinic featuring bike safety inspections (and optionally quick tune-ups), and a safety lecture about the rules of the road (10 to 15 minutes). This is followed by a ride on a miniature “chalk street” course set up in a parking lot where young cyclists are shown where and how to apply the rules. Optional activities include Helmet fitting, prizes and drawings, and in some cases commercial activities such as booths set up by bike shops etc.

The main focus of a bike rodeo is Cycling Safety for young cyclists, ages kindergarten to 14 or so.
