Heatherwood Elementary recently hosted a Bicycle Rodeo for kids as a kick off to their Walk and Roll week. Heatherwood Elementary was awarded a Safe Routes to Schools grant which is primarily being used to get kids safely across 75th street which pretty much cuts the school area right in half. The bike rodeo has a kit loaned to Heatherwood from the super friendly folks at Boulder Valley School District which made setting up and running the rodeo very easy. In the case of Heatherwood, we had over 100 kids participating in it!! That was a huge success.
If your BVSD school is interested in hosting a bike rodeo contact the great folks at Boulder Valley School District SRTS Program and they can get you started, for other Front Range schools try your school district SRTS coordinator or contact bicycleColorado.org but expect to lay down some $$$ for their help.
Studio One Dental race team came out to be the primary supporters of the event and did a knock out job! The owner of Studio One Dental was also on hand helping out, amazing nice guy dedicated to getting kids on bikes.... and healthy teeth. This is not a paid advertisement but I strongly encourage avid cyclist to consider using Studio Dental One as your primary Dentist, he supports cyclist!!!
