Lakedale Communications and the Annandale Police will hold a free bike rodeo
for children to instruct them on proper bike
safety, maintenance, hand signals, and riding etiquette. There will be a bike inspection from
Sports along with refreshments, prizes including two bikes, and a five station
- Station I - The
Balance Test develops the balance skill of each participant.
- Station II - The Diminishing Clearance Test develops each participants
ability to drive a bicycle through a narrowing space.
- Station III - The Obstacle Test develops the riders ability to control
the bicycle while avoiding obstacles on the road.
- Station IV - The Intersection Turn Test develops the riders ability to
make a safe left turn at a busy intersection.
- Station V - The Change in Balance Test develops the riders ability to
maintain balance in both a clockwise and counter-clockwise direction. This

turn and counter steering to end a turn.
Parents are encouraged to attend with their children.
