March 9, 2017 (Lakeside) -- More than 150 elementary school students and their families are ready to master the bicycle skills needed to go from pedaling novice to cycling extraordinaire. At the sixth annual Lakeside Elementary Bike Rodeo, the San Diego Bike Coalition, school staff and community volunteers will teach hands-on bike safety amidst a carnival of food, games and music.  The event is slated for this Saturday, March 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lakeview Elementary School, 9205 Lakeview Road in Lakeside.

The San Diego Bike Coalition recognizes that people only ride bikes when they feel safe on their streets. By educating and empowering even San Diego’s youngest riders, the Bike Coalition builds a confident generation on two wheels that can pedal us toward a more bike-friendly future.

San Diego County Bike Coalition (SDCBC) is a nonprofit organization that advocates for and protects the rights of all people who ride bicycles. They promote bicycling as a mainstream, safe and enjoyable form of transportation and recreation. For more information, please visit www.sdbikecoalition.org.
