The City of Schertz has joined forces with Sippel Elementary, Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Ghisallo Cycling Initiative to put on a Bicycle Rodeo to teach children the skills and precautions to ride a bicycle safely. A bicycle rodeo is a bicycle skills event which provides an opportunity for bicyclists to practice and develop skills that will help them to become better bicyclists and avoid typical crashes. This event will help students learn basic riding and safety skills including bike control, stopping, obstacle avoidance, hand signals, and helmet fitting. This bicycle safety clinic is part of a City-wide initiative to provide a network of bike lanes for students to be able to bike to school safely on a Safe Route to School. Bicycle lanes have been added to Fairlawn Avenue and Belmont Parkway and will be added to Savannah and Woodland Oaks Drive, providing bicycle routes to Paschal, Wilder and Sippel Elementary. The Bicycle Rodeo will take place during the Sippel Elementary family event on Monday, April 22 from 5:30- 7:00 PM. Any elementary-aged (Pre-K through 4th grade) students are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to Cecilia Palomo at firstname.lastname@example.org if your child would like to attend and is not a Sippel Elementary student.
