Appleton Public Library Character Hunt

Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin Bike Rodeo – Family Style
Family education on bike safety!  Help your kids be safe as they enjoy the freedom and independence of riding a bike. Give yourself peace of mind and confidence by learning how to teach the skills that will help keep your kids safe. Due to the small family groups, we will be able to work at your child’s ability level and encourage youth ages 6-15 to attend.

We will work at skill stations to teach children the habits and skills needed to avoid the most common crashes between children on bikes and people driving. After learning and practicing at bike rodeo stations, we will then complete a skills test to determine where we will go on a short 5-15 minute ride to practice what was learned.

Parents will be observing and learning tips on how to continue teaching their kids at home. Then can enjoy following our short ride on their own bicycles.

Pre-Registration Required here
