K-6 Kids can Fine Tune Bike Riding and Safety Skills Newton South Bike Rodeo
May 7 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Sunday, May 7 from 10am-2pm (by appointment). Newton South High School (140 Brandeis Rd, Newton).
Celebrate biking at the 3rd Annual Bike Rodeo in Newton. Massachusetts Safe Routes to Schools instructors will teach and review bike riding skills. Volunteers from Bike Newton and the Newton Safe Routes to Schools Task Force will share information about making sure your body and bicycle is ready to ride; and review road signs, hand signals, and more.
This program is for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade at Newton Schools who are comfortable riding a bike independently. Each participant:
- needs to bring their own bike that fits and is in usable condition (e.g., chain is intact, brakes work, tires are not flat);
- needs to bring and wear a properly fitting helmet; and
- must have a parent or adult caregiver present for the duration of the program. Adults will learn with their child to encourage the skills learned when you go home.
Parent and adult caregivers will have an opportunity to meet with volunteers from Bike Newton and Newton Safe Routes to Schools to learn more about biking opportunities in Newton.
