The Tyler Police Department along with Walmart will sponsor a Bike Rodeo on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at Walmart located at 6801 S. Broadway, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Officers of the police bicycle team will conduct a bicycle safety rodeo for the age groups between 4-13 years old. The bike rodeo will begin with a parent registration and safety check for both the rider and the bicycle. The safety check for the rider is the helmet and bicycle fit. Officers perform a quick-check for proper air in the tires, check to see that the brakes work properly and check that the chains are on properly. There is a short lecture on bicycle safety and children's knowledge of bicycle riding etiquette.
The rodeo will consist of a road course for the participant to ride in, which is usually the children's favorite part.
Parents/Guardians Must be Present
