The Claremore Police Department is hosting a Bicycle Rodeo! Sadly, there will be no clowns or bucking bikes. This is a bicycle safety class aimed at kids 15 and under. It’s a really good opportunity for kids to learn safety and hang out with some awesome police officers!

The class will be held on Saturday, June 17, at the Claremore High School parking lot. (If weather is crummy, it’ll be moved inside to the Frank Mobra Fieldhouse.) There will be two sessions, one from 9a – noon and 1p – 4p. Each participant may only attend one of the sessions. It’ll be really fun, but you still can’t go twice.

The CPD bicycle unit will instruct students on a variety of topics like bicycle laws, rules of the road, safety equipment, and bicycle security. Children 10 and over will have the opportunity to go on a training ride under the supervision of CPD Bicycle Patrol Officers.

Students need to bring their bikes and helmets. Elbow and knee pads are encouraged. Better to be safe, y’all!

Class size is limited to 30 per session. The first 15 to check in on June 17 will receive a free bicycle helmet! Water and snacks will be provided during the training. Parents/guardians will have to sign a liability release form and an emergency contact page prior to the child participating in the bicycle rodeo. Forms can be picked up at the police department’s records division Monday – Friday from 8a – 5p or you can get one the day of the event.

If you have any questions, please contact Officer Eli Vang at evang@claremorecity.com.
