Le Mars is the Ice Cream Capital of the World and pretty great cycling community. When the Plymouth County Cyclists (PCC) asked Iowa Safe Routes to help co-host a bike rodeo we were excited. We were going educate kids on safe riding AND get ice cream!

On 5.13.2021 Iowa Safe Routes to School collaborated with Plymouth County Cyclists to host a bike rodeo outside the local bike shop, Bike Central. PCC invited local law enforcement to do bike registration, Bike Central did bike inspections and helped with helmet fits for the kids and there was a food truck!

Overall about 60 kids learned starting and stopping, handsignals, and handling skills in the serpentine.

Kids busy learning and having fun
