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:
Loose or warped tires
Split or bad tires
Broke or loose spokes
Broken or missing pedals
Loose or broken handgrips
Broken or missing reflectors
Loose or broken seat
Brakes that don't work
Improper seat adjustment
Students will weave through a series of 6 cones

Students will demonstrate right and left hand turns. They will need to use porper hand signals. (Do not use hand signals if it causes you to fall over!)
Students will ride in a controlled right and left circle
