The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce is holding its third annual Bike Safety and Rodeo program with after-school children at Pence Elementary Friday. Thanks to our presenting sponsor AERON Lifestyle Technology and material sponsor The Ride Bike Shop, this program is completely free for the students.
Chamber volunteers use stations to teach a variety of bike safety topics like hand signals, road signs, rules of the road, parts of your bike, ABCs of your bike, and do an egg drop experiment to learn the importance of wearing your helmet. The stations are Monday and Wednesday. Friday is the big day when the Bike Rodeo happens. This fun obstacle course helps students with starting and stopping, turning, and taking turns.
Watch for bikers near Pence on Friday as students are encouraged to ride their bikes to school.
