Family Bicycle Rodeos are open-ended 1-3 hour "on-bike instruction fests" for kids that take place after-school during the months of March-November. Bicycle Skill/Safety Courses are set up on a blacktop, and a variety of stations are offered including helmet fitting and free bike repair by certified mechanics. Parents register kids on site, and are encouraged (but not required) to participate on-bike with their children. Helmets are available for a suggested donation. Requesting organizations are required to attend a pre-rodeo logistics planning session at least 2-3 months in advance of the scheduled event, provide at least 5 volunteers, secure a free blacktop space, tables, chairs, electricity, and bathroom access, and assist with promotion (including printing of promotional materials).
