Be Safe on your Bike

June 16, 2011

On Saturday, May 3rd, Hy-Vee will host a Bike Safety Rodeo from 10 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. This Bike Rodeo is a bicycle safety clinic featuring bike safety inspections (from 10-12), a safety lecture about the rules of the road (5-10 minutes.

This will be followed by a ride on a miniature “chalk street” course set up in the parking lot where young cyclists will be shown where and how to apply the rules. Another popular activity will include a helmet fitting as long as supplies last. The main focus of the bike safety rodeo is cycling safety for young cyclists, ages kindergarten to 14 or so.

The Muscatine Fire Department was awarded a grant and helmets are being purchased with the grant money. These helmets will be distributed that day.
