Bike Rodeo teaches kids safety as weather warms up

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As the weather begins to warm up, people are wanting to spend more of their time outside, with much of it spent on wheels.

But to make sure that families are riding their bikes safely, Safety City in Lubbock is hosting their annual Bike Rodeo to recognize Brain Injury Awareness Month.

With nearly 2.5 million children and adults across the nation sustaining traumatic brain injuries every year, Safety City wants to make sure everyone knows how to properly wear their helmets, and how to ride safely on the roads. 

Youth ages 4-12 will learn how to care for their bikes and how to ride them safely through a challenging obstacle course. Parents will also have the chance to have fun by driving pedal karts through the obstacle course as well, but they will have to wear vision-impairing goggles.

That event will run Saturday, March 31 from 12:00 - 3:00 P.M., but you can arrive and leave whenever you please. The event is free to attend and open to anyone over the age of 4. 

Safety City is located inside Clapp Park on 46th Street and Avenue U.
