The Newark Library, in partnership with Bike East Bay and Cycles of Change, is proud to present the first Kids Cycling Rodeo on Saturday July 18th, from 10 AM to 1 PM!

Designed for kids in K-6th grades to learn essential skills needed to feel confident and safe on their bikes, this rodeo will be a fun and exciting event for everyone. The event includes a bike safety course and skill building, the kids will learn skills like how to preform a bicycle saftey check, signaling and communication, shifting gears, and obstacle avoidance.

Bikes & helmets will be provided, OR you can bring your own!

As an added BONUS – BikeMobile will be on site repairing bikes for FREE! If your bike or your child’s bike is making one of those mystery sounds or collecting dust because it has a flat tire, bring it to the Newark Library on July 18th.  The BikeMobile can fix flat tires, adjust brakes and gears, and even replace broken or worn out parts like chains, seats, and tires. The only thing it can’t do is replace missing wheels or gears. While the mechanics work on your bike they’ll explain how it works and how to keep it running smooth.  In addition to getting a tune up, your child can add some style to their ride by adding colored tape to the frame at the decoration station.

Sign up in advance by contacting the library to reserve your spot, starting July 1st!  Bike or no bike, everyone is welcome to attend to learn about maintenance, safety, and more!
