Tyler Police Department to hold Bike Rodeo at Sam's Club
The Tyler Police Department along with Sam’s Club will sponsor a Bike Rodeo on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at Sam’s Club located at 2025 SSW Loop 323, 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
