The Watershed School PTSA Bike Rodeo is fun and educational. Working with Volunteers in Policing, school officials, and volunteers, PTSA helps set a date; recruit volunteers; and facilitate activities during the event so students learn how to be safe while gaining the benefits of biking.
In 2011, almost every student, nearly 100, participated in the event over the course of the day. Children’s helmets were inspected, even replaced if necessary. All bikes were inspected, repaired, and adjusted for proper fit and safety concerns were noted. The kids then demonstrated and practiced agility, stopping and traffic safety.
