Solana Beach Bike Safety Rodeo event to be held for kids and parents

A Kids’ Bike Safety Rodeo event will be held in Solana Beach on Saturday, Nov. 9. The event is co-sponsored by BikeWalkSolana, Del Sol Lions, City of Solana Beach, Revolution Bike Shop and GoodOnYa Bars. Kids and parents are encouraged to bring their bikes and helmets to the Solana Beach Bike Safety Rodeo any time between 10 a.m. and noon at Skyline Elementary School, 606 Lomas Santa Fe Dr., Solana Beach. Families arriving by bike or foot will receive a bonus prize.

The Solana Beach Bike Safety Rodeo teaches elementary school students and their parents the importance of fun and safe bicycle riding through a series of interactive stations. The stations include a bike safety inspection, helmet fit check, and road skills emphasizing starting, stopping, bike handling, safe riding on streets, and having fun. It will take about 30 minutes to run through this learning experience, led by a League of American Bicyclists League Cycling Instructor (LCI).

The City of Solana Beach promotes active transportation. The bicycle can be used not only for its recreational benefits, but as an alternative to the car for many trips in a compact city where all destinations are just a bike ride away, including getting children to and from local schools. At the Bike Safety Rodeo students and parents will learn how to make a healthy lifestyle choice by riding their bikes safely in the city.

BikeWalkSolana is a local community group advocating for better and safer bicycling and walking facilities in Solana Beach. They serve to foster the growth of cycling and walking to improve the quality of life in the community by promoting it as a safe transportation alternative for residents and visitors. BikeWalkSolana meets monthly. See http://bikewalksolana.org and Facebook/BikeWalkSolana for meeting and event announcements.

The Del Sol Lions Club is funding the Rodeo. The Del Sol Lions serve those in need and youth in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ranch and Carmel Valley. The club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6 -7:30 p.m. at the Fletcher Cove Community Center. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
