Jackson's Annual Bike Safety Rodeo is back! After a pandemic break the past two years, we are joining together again outside Jackson Elementary School from 6:00-8:00pm on Tuesday, May 3rd to have fun and teach kids about bicycle safety! The event will include helmet fittings, bicycle mechanical checks by local bike shop mechanics, a review of the bicycle rules of the road, a fun bicycle skills course to ride through, and an optional neighborhood ride led by Norman Police officers! We'll also have snacks and helmet decorating. Participants should bring their own bicycle and helmet. A limited number of free helmets will be available for those in need. Free helmets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. If you don’t have a bicycle, you can bring a scooter instead. Adults are welcome to bring their bikes and helmets and participate too!
