On May 23rd, the grades 3 and 4 students will be taking part in the Safety on Wheels bike rodeo program, provided by MPI. It is a two-part bicycle safety presentation involving both theory and practice. In part 1, the students will learn about rules of the road (signs, signaling and safety tips), helmet fit, bike fit and bike condition. In part 2, the students will practice riding skills, such as turning, braking, use of hand signals and recognizing road signs. Weather permitting, 3rd street will be blocked off and this will be where the course will be set up.
Ideally, every student should have a bicycle to ride and a helmet in order to get the most benefit from this program. A helmet must be worn while riding. If you have a helmet but are unable to bring your bicycle, please still bring your helmet.
