A FREE event to teach kids the basics of bike safety, get minor bike maintenance done, and make sure those helmets fit right! Begin the day at the Gazebo in the Historic Village and then move through stations for the following events:
~Kids can get their bike inspected and have small repairs done for FREE (parts not included) by Pedal Bicycle.
~Meet with Safe Kids Kalamazoo County to make sure helmets are fitting right and will keep everyone safe. There will also be a limited quantity of FREE helmets to hand out!
~Volunteers will be on hand to teach kids basic bike safety, how to use hand signals, and more.
~Across the street, in the Trust Shield parking lot, kids will have an opportunity to participate in a Bike Rodeo. With the help of volunteers, kids will follow a track and learn to follow road signs like stop and yield and safely cross intersections.
