Bicycle safety rodeo for kids, May 14
Tehachapi Police Department
May 14, 2022
May is bicycle safety month and the Tehachapi Police Department will be hosting a bicycle safety rodeo for children ages 12 and under on Saturday May 14 from 10 a.m. to noon in the public parking lot located at
220 W. C St., in Tehachapi.
A bicycle obstacle course will be set up for the children to maneuver through to test their riding abilities and knowledge of safety. The course will include road signs (STOP, Caution, Yield, etc.), cones for children to navigate their bicycles through while accompanied by police officer or support personnel. The children will learn bicycle safety skills and can interact with police officers in a fun setting.
All bicycles will go through a basic safety inspection prior to entering the course. A limited supply of free bicycle helmets will be provided to children who participate in the safety course (while supplies last).
Partnering with TPD will be the California Highway Patrol, Caltrans, Kern Council of Governments, and Bike Bakersfield.
