A Family Bike Rodeo is coming to Bridgeland on Saturday, May 25!
Learn the key bike handling skills that are necessary to ride safely. Wheely great family fun for ages 7+.
Register in advance for this fun event!
The Family Bike Rodeo is a Level 2: Cycling Basics course. The course is 90 minutes and you can choose from four times throughout the day. Safer Cycling Calgary will provide the training, using a nationally-recognized curriculum.
This is a non-road course where participants learn safe bike handling skills like helmet check, bike fit, straight line riding, shoulder checking, signalling, stopping and bike security.
Participants must be at least 7 years old and be able to start independently, balance and pedal for at least 20 m, come to a stop using brakes (coaster or hand brakes are acceptable), turn left and right, and ride with one hand (keeping right hand on) for 3 seconds. Participants must bring their own bike in good working order and a properly fitted helmet. No training wheels permitted.
Adults can participate too! Even if you are not participating, a parent or guardian must be on site to observe each child’s 90-minute session.
This session is free of charge for Bridgeland-Riverside residents, but we ask you to pay a $20 fee to hold your spot. This fee will be returned to you after the training (please let us know if you’re a fair entry BRCA member and we can waive the fee).
Location: Murdoch Park (next to the Bridgeland-Riverside Community Hall; 917 Centre Ave NE).
