On Sunday, the Verona Police Department hosted a bike “rodeo” in the Verona Pool parking lot to help children in second through fifth grades to learn safe riding techniques and other biking skills. There were four separate safety sessions throughout the day and different skill courses the kids could run through on their bikes.

The event was supported by Verona Cycle, a group of parents and students that has been working to encourage more bike riding in town. “The VPD were very helpful in really working with each child in encouraging the fun healthy activity of biking, while providing the right safety tools,” says Dina Lilley, a member of Verona Cycle. “Although it was a hot day, that did not stop these kids from enjoying their ride in an open safe space, where they could learn new tips, as well as have fun with their friends.”

Each participant went through a bike safety check when they arrived and was given a bike light. Upon completion of the course each child received a small fun prize to take home.

The VPD is hoping to host more bike rodeos in the future.
