On Saturday September 21, New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids-Trenton, in partnership with Greater Mercer Transportation Management Authority, held a bike rodeo in Trenton. Bike rodeos are clinics designed to help teach kids the importance of riding a bicycle safely and what skills and precautions they need to develop to be safe on their bicycles.
Nearly 40 kids participated in the rodeo, each of whom got a bike helmet, learned how to wear helmets properly, and were taught some basic cycling and road safety skills.
Volunteers from the following organizations ensured the day was successful: Trenton Cycling Revolution, the West Windsor Bicycle-Pedestrian Alliance, the Princeton Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee, the Trenton Bike Exchange, New Jersey DOT, the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, New Jersey Ambassadors in Motion, and graduate students from the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers.
We look forward to many more bike rodeos in Trenton and throughout Mercer Counties!SHARE:
