Celebrate safe biking in Newton at the Bike Rodeo!  MA Safe Routes to Schools instructors will teach and review bike riding skills.  Volunteers from Bike Newton will also help teach fun stations including knowing signs and hand signals, how to care for your bike, and more.

This program is geared towards students in Kindergarten through 6th grade at Newton Schools that are comfortable riding a bike independently.  In order to participate:
-Each child needs to bring their own bike.  Please make sure the bike fits the child and is in usable condition (chain is intact, brakes work, tires are not flat, etc)
-Each child needs to bring and wear a properly fitting helmet.
-Each child must have a parent or adult present for the duration of the program.  Adults, we want you to learn the skills your child is learning so you can help to reinforce the skills learned when you go home.

Parents/adults will have an opportunity to meet with volunteers from Bike Newton and Newton Safe Routes to Schools to learn more about biking opportunities in Newton.
