The Taylorville Police Department will be holding a bike rodeo event on Saturday, July 17th from 9 AM until 12 PM. The event is open to all kids ages 3-14 years. They must be accompanied by an adult and the kids are asked to bring their bike and a helmet if they have one. Taylorville Police Officer Kirsten Bolinger says it is a way to learn safety rules and have fun at the same time.
There will be plenty of things at the rodeo including a skills course.
At the end of the day, it’s really about teaching safety to all cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians.
There will also be a raffle where you have a chance to win one of eight bicycles. The event is taking place at the Junior High School at 120 East Bidwell Street in Taylorville.
