There will be a Bike Rodeo, where kids will learn the “rules of the road” when riding their bike and the importance of wearing their helmet correctly. Remember to bring your bikes and helmets. Parents can have their car seat checked for proper installation. Be sure to bring your car, your child, and the car seat. The check takes about 30 minutes.
