Middletown Recreation to Host a Youth Bike Rodeo

Middletown Recreation will be hosting a Youth Bike Rodeo for kids in first through fifth grade, which will be free to Middletown residents. The event will be held Thursday, May 4 from 4 to 6 pm at Kunkel Park in Leonardo. May the 4th be with you! Wear your favorite Star Wars gear.

The bike rodeo promotes cycling proficiency, safe riding and fun in the community. Kids need to bring their bike and helmet to learn more about bike safety as part of the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign. In partnership with the Middletown Police Department, kids will learn about how to correctly fit their helmet and bike, how to properly use hand signals, and how to ride safely on roads through a series of stations.

This event satisfies Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts badges, so bring your troop/pack out!

Please note – this is not a learn-how-to-ride your bike event. Kids should be good riders. Training wheels are welcome.
