Annual Bike Rodeo Teaches Kids Safety on the Streets


By: Sharon Aron Baron

March is Florida Bicycle Month and to celebrate, the City of Tamarac is holding their Annual Bike Rodeo where children can learn about safety and the rules of the road.

Each year 40-60 participants 5 years and up join the Tamarac Broward Sheriff’s Office and their Explorers Program, where they give away free helmets, properly adjust them for safety and teach them bicycle safety by going through a fun obstacle course.

At the event will be refreshments, giveaways and a chance to win a new bicycle for one lucky winner.

All participants meet Saturday, March 12, at the Community Center Parking Lot at 8601 West Commercial Blvd where the event will run from 10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
