Kid’s Bike Rodeo planned in Manawa
The Kid’s Bike Rodeo will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 18, at the Manawa Masonic Lodge.
Manawa police officers will be on-hand to cover bike safety and on-site bike obstacle courses, with bike safety inspections conducted by Little Wolf Auto.
There will be free give-away bicycle accessories to early birds.
All children up to age 14 are invited to attend. They must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The SRTS Program improves walking and biking travel options, and promotes healthier lifestyles in children at an early age.
