Bike Rodeo

The Bike Rodeo is a fun rite of passage event for our 3rd to 5th graders who would like to receive the “license” to ride their bike to school. Prospect works with a local bike shop, the Clarendon Hills Police Department, and State Farm Insurance to create stations where the kids receive a safety check for their bike and helmet, ride through a bicycling safety course, and finally get their bike registered with the school and the Clarendon Hills Police Department. This event is typically held in the beginning of the school year.

WHEN: Saturday, August 29th from 9-11am
WHERE: Prospect School Blacktop (Basketball Court)

To ride a bike to school, 3-5th graders must complete the bike rodeo. At this event, please ensure that you and your child are wearing a mask. To ensure social distancing, there will be only one child at each station at a time.  The stations include a bike/ helmet safety check by volunteers, a road course to be completed safely by State Farm Insurance, and bike engraved/registered with the local police (on-site). Please SIGN UP for a time slot and only show up at that time to allow for limited number of children present at one time.
If you arrive early, please wait in your car until your time slot!

Prerequisites:
A mask for your child
An adult with mask and pen to accompany, supervise, and fill out registration forms
Your own pen to fill out form
A bike helmet
A bike in good condition with filled tires

FAQ:
If you can’t make that date, visit the CH Police to get your bike registered.
Bike locks are not required at the event.
4th & 5th graders with new bikes do not need to attend the bike rodeo again. Just take the bike to the CH police department to get the bike etched. For questions, contact sarahcryan@gmail.com or ann.m.tushaus@gmail.com
