Bike safety event in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Sooner or later, children will be out riding their bikes in the nice weather again.

To promote safe bicycle riding habits and reducing accidents, they are invited to bring their bicycle and helmet to participate in the 21st Annual Safety Rules Bike Rodeo.

The free event will offer interactive activities for children.

A course with a series of safety stations will give them the opportunity to learn correct riding skills, with the focus on learning to control their bicycle.

Other activities include tours of a fire engine, ambulance, and police car and the opportunity to visit with the Dubuque Bicycle Police.

The event takes place Saturday, May 19 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Dubuque County Emergency Responder Training Facility (14928 Public Safety Way).

Several organizations are helping with the event, including UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital, Dupaco Community Credit Union and The Bike Shack.
