What is a bike rodeo?

According to Cornell's "Guide to Bicycle Rodeos", a bike rodeo is:

A rodeo is a bicycle skills event which provides an opportunity for bicyclists to practice and develop skills that will help them to become better bicyclists and avoid typical crashes. Some rodeos are designed as large, municipal events with skills activities, exhibits and games, while others are much smaller in format, requiring a smaller number of volunteers. An evaluator provides immediate feedback to the participant in a positive manner (satisfactory; needs improvement). If the child has difficulty with a particular lesson, he or she has the chance to keep practicing. The goal of any bicycle rodeo is to provide an opportunity for the participants to learn, practice, and demonstrate their bicycle handling skills in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere.

But it's MUCH more than that! We're focusing on safety and fun:

The Cub Scout West Haven Bike Rodeo

Here it is! The Cub Scouts of West Haven present the first ever West Haven Bike Rodeo. 

Kids across West Haven can come down to the High School parking lot on Sunday, July 10th to learn about bicycle safety. But that's only a portion of it! Kids can also can test their skills, view demonstrations, and gather the giveaways. There will be everything from the West Haven Police to a meteorologist from WTNH on site!

The flyer is below, but you can find more details at or by emailing the event organizer.
