Kids Safety Rodeo


Historic Roswell Kiwanis conducted its 13th annual Kids’ Bicycle Safety Rodeo on Sunday, April 26, 2015 while the Roswell Criterium Bicycle races were taking place nearby. The Kids’ Bicycle Safety Rodeo was co-sponsored by the Key Clubs of Centennial High School and Roswell High School and the Builders Clubs of Crabapple Middle School and Elkins Pointe Middle School.

It was held at the Roswell United Methodist Church parking lot on the corner of Mimosa and Magnolia.

Historic Roswell Kiwanis believes that bicycle safety is one of the most important skills that can be taught in order to keep children who ride safe on the roads.

The Historic Roswell Kiwanis Kids’ Bicycle Safety Rodeo is an organized “class” where children learn about cycling safety and bicycle handling skills. After the “class” portion, the children hit an obstacle course to navigate in order to “graduate” from the class and be eligible to race in the Kids’ Races to be held on the same course as the Pro race!

All bicycles were inspected and “tuned-up” by the mechanics of Roswell Bicycles, and all helmets were checked. Roswell Bicycles sponsored the Roswell Criterium, and supported the Bike Rodeo and the Mayor’s Ride.

A special thanks to…
• Roswell United Methodist Church
• Mayor Jere Wood, Legion of Honor Kiwanian
• Roswell Recreation and Parks staff; Jeff Pruitt, Administrator of Park Services
• Roswell Bicycles mechanics and staff
• Roswell Police Department
• Fire Dept. EMTs, Roswell Public Safety Department
• Roswell Transportation Dept
• Key Clubs of Centennial and Roswell High Schools
• Builders Clubs of Crabapple and Elkins Pointe Middle Schools
• Historic Roswell Kiwanis volunteers
