From Rick Hill – Green Bike Volunteer
The Green Bike Co-op of Waldport is sponsoring a bicycle rodeo in conjunction with the Gravel Epic Bike Race August 23 at Waldport High School. Hours of the rodeo are 11 am to 3 pm.
Three bicycle agility and safety events will be offered to kids and adults. Bikes and helmets will be provided. There is no cost, but donations will go to Seashore Family Literacy which operates the Green Bike Co-op.
Do you and your kids know bicycle safety rules? How about hand signals for turning? If under 16, do your kids wear helmets? (It’s the law). Can they maneuver their bikes around objects in tight places? How good is their balance on a bike?
Come to the Gravel Epic staging area at Waldport High School this Saturday. While waiting for the racers to cross the finish line, enjoy testing your skills on the rodeo course. Volunteers from the Green Bike Co-op will be there to teach safety and judge agility. Bring you own bike, or use ours. Have fun and learn about bicycle safety.
