Shoreline Bicycle Rodeo rides again

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

With summer vacation just around the corner, Richmond Highlands, Hillwood, Meridian Park, Highland Terrace Neighborhood Associations and Innis Arden Club are working together to raise awareness about the importance of bicycle safety.

They are sponsoring a free Bicycle Rodeo on Saturday, June 1, 2019, from 2 to 4pm, at Sunset School Park, 17840 10th NW, Shoreline 98177.

The bicycle rodeo is designed to teach safe bicycle riding skills for children ages five to 12 and their parents.

During the event, participants will be taught safe riding techniques through an obstacle course that recreates real-life situations. 

The course will help participants practice scanning for automobiles, develop correct riding techniques, and teach children how to avoid road hazards such as tree limbs, potholes, and rocks.

Volunteers will be on duty to assist in helmet and bicycle fitting and to help in preparing bicycles to be road ready.

Children need to bring their own bikes and helmets to the event. There will be a limited number of helmets available to children who do not have them. 

Parents or legal guardians will be required to sign a waiver for their children to participate. A copy of the waiver can be obtained in advance to speed up registration by email request.

It is the desire of the neighborhood associations that the materials and kit they create for this rodeo will be shared with other neighborhoods to promote safe bicycle skills.

For more information about the Shoreline Bicycle Rodeo or to volunteer or donate prizes and food items please email contact information or see the facebook page – Shoreline Bicycle Rodeo.
