Join us for Bike Rodeo
10am-2pm on Saturday, June 13
Port Orchard Walmart

This is a great opportunity for cub scouts, camp fire, and child play groups to learn some basic bicycle safety skills as they prepare for summer fun!

This year we will be providing FREE bike helmets to kids from toddler age to about 12 years old. Club members will assist with helmet fitting to ensure they function properly. In addition, we will have a number of bikes which will be given to kids who need them. Kids can bring their own bikes to be "fine tuned" by Kitsap Fire and Rescue personnel including a tire check, break check, and fitting to make sure the seat is the correct height for the child. Kids can also use our bikes or their own to ride our safety obstacle course.
