Kids Safety Rodeo


Historic Roswell Kiwanis will conduct its 13th annual Kids’ Bicycle Safety Rodeo on Sunday, April 26, 2015 while the Roswell Criterium Bicycle races are taking place nearby. The Kids’ Bicycle Safety Rodeo is 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.

As always it will be 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 will 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 are inspected and “tuned-up” by the mechanics of Roswell Bicycles, and all helmets will be checked. Roswell Bicycles sponsors the Roswell Criterium, and supported the Bike Rodeo and the Mayor’s Ride.
