Fourth Annual Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair
February 25, 2012
Bicycle Rodeos were one of my favorite events growing up-- I'm happy to report that La Quinta is hosting their 4th Annual event this month!
The La Quinta Police Department Traffic Services Team is hosting their Fourth
Annual “Bicycle Rodeo and Safety Fair” on Saturday, February 25. A bike rodeo
is a one-day training event that provides an opportunity for young bicyclists
to practice and develop skills that will help them become better bicyclists and
avoid typical crashes.
WHAT IS A BICYCLE RODEO?
It features safety inspections, rules of the road, and helmet safety. The goal is to
empower young cyclists, with a minimal set of skills, for on-road riding. Free
bicycle helmets will be given while the supply lasts.
RIDE THE BICYCLE SAFETY COURSE
Young cyclists will experience riding on a miniature course where they can learn
how to apply the rules of the road. An officer will point out hazards and offer
safety tips. Riders will learn about blind corners, stopping at stop signs, staying
off sidewalks, yielding to pedestrians, intersections, crosswalks, and driveways.
