CURWENSVILLE – Safe Kids Clearfield County, in conjunction with the Curwensville Public Library, has rescheduled its Bicycle Rodeo.
It’s now being held Monday, June 24, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the parking lot of Curwensville Area Elementary School, located at 650 Beech St., Curwensville.
The event is open to all interested youth with spots available for the first 50 registrants.
This year marks the fourth consecutive year Safe Kids Clearfield County has offered this event locally. Previous bicycle rodeos were offered in Philipsburg (2016), Clearfield (2017) and DuBois (2018).
A bicycle rodeo is a clinic to teach children the skills and precautions to ride a bicycle safely. Participants will take part in various stations including an obstacle course, bike inspection and helmet fitting.
Organizers invite local children to join for an evening of fun and safety for the whole family. Upon conclusion of the rodeo, youth participants will receive a snack, special course completion certificate and be eligible for various prizes, including a new bike.
Participants should bring a bicycle, helmet and be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
