To celebrate National Bike Month we are hosting the first annual “Taos Bike Rodeo” in our community. This community-wide event is for children and adults of all ages and biking abilities. The goal is to provide our community with a fun, safe, and supervised bike rodeo for building youth and adult awareness of promoting cycling for fun, transportation, safe biking practices, skills and fitness.
All participants are required to have a completed registration/waiver form prior to participate. All youth must be registered and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Parents please bring your child’s bike and helmet. Local bike shops, Gearing Up Bicycle Shop and Taos Cyclery, will be on hand to inspect bikes for safety and helmet inspection for proper fit. Free helmets will be provided for children needing a helmet while supplies and sizes last. Helmets are required for all riders.
There will be skilled building activities, cycling games and Rules of the Road lessons provided by Field Institute of Taos coaches and instructors. A limited number of loaner bikes will be available. (120) gift bags will be given to the youth completing the activities and visiting the booths and games. Reading of Bike Month Proclamation by Mayor Dan Barrone. Lunch will be provided.
