BikeWalk Williamsburg Conducts a Bike Skills Rodeo

In partnership with Williamsburg-JCC Safe Routes to School Program, BikeWalk Williamsburg conducted a Bike Skills Rodeo April 28 as part of Safe Kids and Healthy Kids Day at the R.F. Wilkinson Family YMCA.

A Bike Skills Rodeo is for grades K-5 and includes a bike safety inspection and minor adjustments as well as a series of skills learning stations directly related to everyday bicycling situations including starting and stopping, safely exiting a driveway, how to look for traffic, negotiating intersections and avoiding common road hazards. Over 85 students and guardians participated and were supported by 20 community volunteers.
