The Albany Police Activities League bicycle rodeo was held in on May 19, 2018. The goal of the bicycle rodeo is to encourage riders to wear helmets on every ride, to give young cyclists basic skills for on-road riding, and to teach them the rules of the road to help keep them safe. Please look for another fun rodeo in spring 2020.
Last year’s activities and entertainment included bike inspections and a confidence course hosted by Cycles of Change and Pete Brandt doing his flatland stunts, as well as face painting. Albany Strollers and Rollers lent their expertise and the Albany High School Key Club helped with logistics.
The bicycle rodeo is a collaborative activity of APAL and the Albany Police Department in partnership with the City of Albany Safe Routes to Schools Grant. We hope to see lots of young bicycle riders at the bicycle rodeo.
