Thanks to everyone who helped put on this 4th annual bike safety rodeo, and to the 100 students who participated. Wouldn't it be great if more schools throughout Lee County put on these bike safety rodeos? If you have kids in school, get involved and help make this happen!
On Saturday Feb 7th families and students from Christa McAuliffe and Oasis Elementary Schools participated in their fourth annual Bike Rodeo, promoting safe bicycle operation and proper rules of the road. With the help of many sponsors including Caloosa Riders Bicycle Club, Golisano’s Children Hospital, and Hollywood Bicycle Inc., and BikeWalkLee, roughly 100 students were properly fit for helmets, had their bikes professionally tuned, and rode through an eight station safety course organized and operated by BikeWalkLee's Steve Chupack and Dan Moser.
Of the event Chupack said, “No other elementary schools in Cape Coral have a four year track record of being committed to this kind of bicycle safety "clinic" approach that takes place during the Rodeo.”
Also, with thanks to each school’s PTO, Zivkovic Family Medicine, TowBoat US, Northwestern Mutual Insurance, and Zivkovic and Associated Real Estate Services, eight children’s bikes were raffled off to participants.
