Street Smarts teaches kids about bicycle safety by putting on several bike rodeos each year at elementary schools in the San Ramon Valley.
Bike rodeos are an opportunity for children to learn about the safety aspects of riding a bicycle in a safe, controlled, hands-on environment. Bike rodeos are oftentimes a child’s only opportunity to learn the rules of the road, have their helmet properly checked and practice riding their bike in a supervised bicycle course. All students at the school are encouraged to bike to school on the day of the event. The bike rodeo takes place after school on the school blacktop and typically lasts one hour.
