Free Bike Rodeo at Hardin Park on Saturday, August 22

Watch for me NC

 

The annual Bike Rode will take place this Saturday from 9am to 12pm at Hardin Park Elementary. The event is free and open to all elementary school-aged children. There will be bike inspection stations, bicycle safety lessons, fun activities, healthy snacks and and of course prizes.

Please remember to bring your own bikes and helmets. If you still want to enjoy the fun but don’t have the capability to bring your bike, don’t worry as there will be a few bikes and helmets available.

The Watch for Me NC program involves two key elements:

1) safety and educational messages directed toward drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists, and

2) enforcement efforts by area police to crack down on some of the violations of traffic safety laws. Local programs are typically led by municipal, county, or regional government staff with the involvement of many others, including pedestrian and bicycle advocates, city planners, law enforcement agencies, engineers, public health professionals, elected officials, school administrators and others.

For more information about this great campaign, visit the Watch for Me website or call the Boone Public Works Department at (828) 268-6230.
