DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Dubuque's 18th Annual Safety Rules Bike Rodeo is set for Saturday at the Dubuque County Emergency Responder Training Facility from 9 a.m. to noon.

The event is organized by a number of local organizations to promote safe bicycle riding habits and reducing accidents involving children.   It's free and offers many activities for children.

There will be a course set up with a series of seven safety stations that gives children the opportunity to learn correct riding skills, like checking your bike and helmet, riding techniques and safety procedures. 

Children who complete the course are eligible to win one of many prizes, including a new bike from The Bike Shack or a new bike helmet.

Other activities include tours of a fire engine and ambulance, a clown and the chance to meet the Dubuque Bicycle Police.
