Though National Bike Safety Month is in May, Cranberry Township is always focused on keeping cyclists of all ages safe.
And that starts with learning the rules of the road, as well as some safety tips for both the rider and their cycle.
That’s the aim of the Township Police Department’s Bike Rodeo, which returns from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 23 in Community Park.
The Bike Rodeo is presented by the Police Department and Cranberry EMS, as well as community partners the Cranberry Elks, AAA East Central, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Trek Bicycle.
Via a series of stations, officers and volunteers from Trek Cycling will perform free bike inspections and helmet fittings. Staff will teach hand signals to be used while riding, as well as provide additional safety tips.
Participants will then test their skills on the obstacle course, which will feature educational stops along the way.
The event will also feature giveaways, refreshments, raffles, and more.
Pre-registration is not required. For more information, contact Lt. William Ahlgren, Community Relations, at 724-776-5180 ext. 1423.
