Bike Rodeo

The WCA PTA is proud to announce our annual bicycle safety and awareness event - the Bike Rodeo! Coach Knowlton will be teaching your child about bike safety during P.E. class and will take the students on a walk through of the course so that all students will know what to do to participate in the Bike Rodeo.

All students are encouraged to participate in the Bike Rodeo and all who do will receive a participation ribbon. The students in each grade level who receive the top 3 scores will receive award medals. Students are welcome to use training wheels if needed.

The students will be judged and scored in each of the following Bike Rodeo events:
