ELKHART, Ind. -- The Elkhart Noon Kiwanis Club will host its 2nd Annual Bike Safety Rodeo (Racing for Safety) event on May 21 to educate kids about bike safety through an interactive bike course.

Students in kindergarten through the sixth grade are invited to learn about the importance of wearing a bike helmet, basic rules of the road, hand turn signals and basic traffic safety signs.

A mapped-out course will provide attendees with an interactive experience that will teach these crucial bike safety skills which could potentially be lifesaving.

"The 1st Annual Bike Safety Rodeo was in 2019 and COVID-19 would not allow us to bring it back the following year. Now that we have another opportunity, our goal is to provide safety gear and education to at least 100 to 150 students. Every parent should sign their child up for this free event,” said Leatra Scott, Kiwanis Racing for Safety Course Coordinator.

This event will be hosted at Pierre Moran Middle School on May 21 from 9 a.m. to noon. Each kid that pre-registers and attends the event will receive a free helmet.

Students must bring their bike to this event for inspection and to participate in the course. Email [email protected] for more information or to receive a registration form.
