Children's Bike Rodeo at Brook Run Park


A couple years ago when I became involved in bicycling advocacy, I didn't just want to be a nagging voice. I  became engaged with the community, elected officials and the process. Last month I organized a Family-friendly Bicycle Ride Around Dunwoody, with 3 separate rides and distances for ALL levels (Trikes, beginners, moderate and roadies.). This month, I've coordinated a Children's Bike Rodeo at Brook Run Park. Here's the details:

This event is free and open to the public. Bring the kids for some great fun and learning about safe riding! Kids need to bring their own bikes and helmets. We will have a limited number of helmets for children in need of them. There will be a raffle of door prizes, too!

The rodeo will consist of several stations:

▲Helmet fitting station
▲Bike inspection station
▲Obstacles, (safe riding lessons)
▲Bike Security
▲”Graduation” Bike Ride in the Park with Dunwoody Police and Much More!


What:         Children’s Bike Rodeo
When:        Sat May 14, 9am-12pm
Where:       Brook Run Park, at the former administrative buildings
 Immediate left from North Peachtree entrance. 
 Park your vehicle on right, near the  skate Park – or ride your bikes!
Why:         Teach your kids to ride safely and have fun doing it!
 
Participants should bring their bikes and an adult for registration
