Bring your elementary and middle school aged kids to Albany Police Activity League’s Annual Bike Rodeo!

Free bicycle helmets will be given to the first 100 youth participants.

Rodeo activities will include bike inspections, safety information, and a bicycle safety course.
The goal of the bicycle rodeo is to encourage riders to wear helmets on every ride, to give young cyclists basic skills for on-road riding, and to teach them the rules of the road to help keep them safe. This event focuses on young riders in elementary and middle school.

Cycles of Change and some AS&R members will again be working with kids, showing them how to ride their bikes safely and responsibly.
We’ll also have our  “Check for Bikes” clings on hand for parents, our Reflective Leg & Arm Bands …and the famous Bicycle Blender so everyone can pedal-power a delicious smoothie!
PLEASE VOLUNTEER: We could definitely use some help running the bike blender station, fitting helmets, and talking to parents & kids about biking and AS&R. Any takers, please? Volunteers get a cash-value coupon from one of our favorite local supporting businesses, Blue Heron Bikes! Want to help out? Please contact Ken McCroskey.

Kids, don’t try this at home…just yet!

Entertainment will be provided by world-famous flatland BMX rider Pete Brandt!
