Bike Rodeo at the Civic Center, June 8th, 10-Noon

October 30, 2018

Free Helmets For Kids!

The Saranac Lake Kiwanis Club sponsors the annual Bicycle Rodeo at the Civic Center in Saranac Lake each year.

As usual, it includes:

  • Rider Course
  • Free Bicycle Helmets (old helmets can be traded in)
  • Bike Mechanics for free tune-ups
  • Bicycle Raffle
  • Refreshments

It’s great to see new bike riders getting off to a good start with safety, knowing the rules, a new helmet and a bike that’s been checked out. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

This is a collaborative effort and the Kiwanis Club could not do the event without the assistance and support of:

  • Saranac Lake Police Benevolent Association
  • Saranac Lake Civic Center
  • Blue Line Sports
  • Human Power Planet Earth Bicycle Repair
  • Franklin County Health Department
  • North Country Healthy Heart Network
  • Team Placid Planet
