Pilot Club of Hohenwald’s “Don’t Be Insane, Protect Your Brain” Project

Teach Bicycle Safety with Upcoming Bike Rodeo

Pilot Club of Hohenwald, in partnership with Coordinated School Health, will hold a Bike Rodeo for children (ages 5-8) on May 4, 2019 at Lewis County Middle School from 9-11 a.m. The rodeo is designed to educate students on bike safety as well as helping students learn biking skills. The event features stations which include: bike and helmet fit, start and stop skills, scanning, how to ride safely in the street and sidewalks, etc.

All participants will have a chance to learn, practice and demonstrate their bicycle handling skills in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere.

It is suggested everyone attending should bring a bicycle and a helmet. Bicycle helmets will be provided for children who do not have one.

Parents are encouraged to register their child for the event when they receive their parent letters and permission forms from the school.

Individuals and/or businesses interested in volunteering at the bike rodeo, especially high school students interested in satisfying part of their community service graduation requirement, should contact Pilot Club President, Lindsey Wayland at pilotclubofhohenwald@gmail.com to learn more.

Upon completing the bike rodeo events, participants will receive certificates and be entered into a drawing to win various prizes, including a chance to win a bicycle. Parents will have a chance to win door prizes as well.

For additional information, contact Lindsey Wayland at pilotclubofhohenwald@gmail.com.

This event is being funded through the Pilot International Founders Fund Matching Grant as well as funds from the Pilot Club of Hohenwald.
