The Door County Silent Sports Alliance and the City of Sturgeon Bay will be sponsoring a free bike safety rodeo Saturday, May 11 at Market Square in Sturgeon Bay.
This bike rodeo is geared for children in 3rd through 7th grades. Kids will watch a video on bike safety, then will learn through hands-on experience about the rules of the road, hand signals, and safety. There will also be helmet fittings and bike checks.
Rodeos will take place at 9:00 am, 10:15 am, 11:30 am, and 12:45 pm. Space is limited to 40 participants in each session. If interested, please sign up in advance for the session of your choice at the Sturgeon Bay Police Dept., 746-2450, Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm; or call TJ Walker Middle School at 746-2806.
Kids will need to bring their own bikes with them in good operating condition: tires inflated, seats adjusted properly, etc. Upon completion of the bike safety rodeo, all participants will receive a Bell bike helmet.
The bike safety rodeo will take place four days before Bike to School Day, which is May 15.
