Bike Rodeo Event

Don’t miss the bicycle rodeo on July 23rd from 10-11 am at the Saturday Market in Cedarville (just off of Main Street).  The bicycle rodeo will include three skill building obstacle courses that will help children learn how to safely ride their bikes in town.  Children of all ages are welcome to attend.  Public Health is collaborating with CHP, the Sheriff’s office, and Les Schwab to provide a fun and educational experience.  Public Health will be able to provide medium and large sized helmets for children who do not have a helmet of their own.  We will need parents to fill out permission slips for each child to participate.  Permission slips will be available at the event.  If you have questions, please call Public Health at (530)233-6311 or 1-800-762-3003.
