Historic Roswell Kiwanis conducted its 17th annual Kids' Bicycle Safety Rodeo on Sunday, April 29, 2018 while the Streets Alive Bicycle Festival was taking place nearby. The Kids' Bicycle Safety Rodeo is co-sponsored by the Key Clubs of Centennial High School, Milton High School and Roswell High School, and by the Builders Clubs of Crabapple Middle and Elkins Pointe Middle Schools. The Historic Roswell Kiwanis Kids' Bicycle Safety Rodeo is supported and assisted by Bike Roswell!, our city's premiere bicycle advocacy group.
The rodeo took place at East Alley, behind the restaurants of Canton Street, a new location closer to the Streets Alive action.
Historic Roswell Kiwanis believes that bicycle safety is one of the most important skills that can be taught in order to keep children who ride safe on the roads.
The Historic Roswell Kiwanis Kids' Bicycle Safety Rodeo is an organized "class" where children learn about cycling safety and bicycle handling skills. After the "class" portion, the children hit an obstacle course to navigate in order to "graduate" from the class.
All bicycles were inspected and "tuned-up" by the mechanics of Roswell Bicycles, and all helmets were checked. Roswell Bicycles is a sponsor of Streets Alive, and a supporter the Bike Rodeo and the Mayor's Ride.
