What is a bike rodeo?
It’s a scaled down, 2-dimensional, mock city made of wood/plastic. Once the city is setup, kids have a chance to interact in a setting similar to real world traffic. The only difference is that our city is free of real traffic hazards. While going through the course kids are able to learn valuable lessons about how to interact with pedestrians, cars, and even what to do at traffic lights and other traffic signage. Below you can see a sample of how it looks in action:
How does it work?
We will loan the our bicycle trailer for day use to community groups who have a vehicle with a hitch and sign and agree to the terms in the Bicycle Trailer Application. Everything you need is packed into our Bicycle Rodeo Trailer. Setup is as easy as emptying the trailer. Please take a look at the following guide for more details: Safe Moves City Training Guide
Follow the instructions below to find out how you can reserve the Bicycle Rodeo Trailer for your event.
We also encourage bike rodeo participants to make a pledge to always wear a helmet to be safe on the road. Make sure to print out plenty of English and Spanish versions to take to your event. You can also hand out our Top Ten Tips for Bicycle Safety pamphlet, also available in English and Spanish

We try to give a chance for kids to experience traffic laws first hand along with our very own dummy drivers.
Safety first, that’s how we roll!
