Kids’ Bike Rodeos are scheduled for May 21 at the TwispWorks campus and June 11 at Pearrygin Lake State Park north of Winthrop. The free events are from 10 a.m. – noon.
The rodeos are designed for children aged 5 – 10. Participants will learn skills to ride safely, including hand signals, negotiating corners, riding a straight line and stopping and starting. Volunteers will also conduct bike helmet fittings and bike safety inspections.
Registration begins at 9:45 a.m. A signed parent permission form is required and will be available at registration. Bike helmets are also required to participate in the event. Bicycle helmets will be available for a $5 donation.
The events are co-sponsored by Methow Cycle & Sport, Washington State Parks, TwispWorks, Aero Methow Rescue Service, Winthrop Kiwanis, Okanogan County Fire District 6, and the Twisp Police Department.
