Stockton Elementary School To Host Bike Rodeo For Safe Cycling Skills

Yellow Line

Flora Arca Mata Elementary School in Stockton will be the venue for an engaging Bike Rodeo, aiming to equip children with essential safe biking skills. Scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 6, this event is a collaborative effort between the City of Stockton Safe Routes to School program and the Stockton Unified School District Department of Public Safety.

The initiative is designed to create a fun and educational environment where children of all ages can learn the fundamentals of safe cycling. City officials have announced plans to set up a miniature city at the school site. This innovative setup will allow participants to navigate driveways and intersections, comprehend traffic signs and signals, and master bike riding in a safe manner.

Highlighting the day’s activities will be a bike grand prize drawing and bicycle helmet giveaways, adding an element of excitement to the educational experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice their newly acquired biking skills, demonstrating their proficiency in real-time. While kids are encouraged to bring their own bikes and helmets, there will be equipment available for loan for those who need it. Additionally, bike and helmet checks will be offered to all guests, ensuring that everyone’s gear is in top condition.

Participation in the bike rodeo requires the presence of a parent or guardian, and a signed permission form is mandatory for all children who wish to join in the fun. This event not only promises a day filled with engaging activities but also aims to instill a sense of responsibility and safety among young cyclists.

This initiative represents a significant step toward promoting cycling safety and awareness among Stockton's youth, fostering a safer and more informed generation of cyclists.
