Teaching Safe Bicycling

We provide a variety of Train the Trainer classes to help communities around the state host their own Bike Rodeos for kids. We will be scheduling classes for Spring and Summer of 2023 this winter. If you are interested in helping to host a class in your city please reach out to info@wisconsinbikefed.org or fill out the interest survey linked below.

  • Learn to develop and organize a successful child bicycle safety event in your community
  • Find out how children differ from adults as riders and how their crashes are different
  • Understand safe riding tips and how to avoid the most common crashes between kids and people driving
  • Experience hands on hazard identification and how to reduce hazards


    Trailside Signs with QR Codes Provide DIY Training and Lessons

    In partnership with the Wisconsin DOT, Bike Fed offers trailside signs with QR codes that allow families and community groups to watch short videos, access downloadable slides, and then practice skills at their own pace or on their own schedule. This educational opportunity is available for all communities to help riders at any level learn skills and tips to keep everyone safe. The signs even have bike-friendly driver tips to create a better sense of community with everyone sharing the road respectfully!

    Get signs for your community! The set of 9 (12” x 18” aluminum) signs is available for communities and for businesses to sponsor and post in communities. They also come with printable graphics and instruction cards to help volunteers at bike rodeos focus on the most common reasons for crashes between kids on bikes and people driving cars.

    Starting in October 2022, a set of signs is available with these special offers (subject to change):

    • Community Membership at $500 includes a set of 9 signs
    • Sponsorship of 20 sets of 9 signs can include your logo positioned between the DOT and Bike Fed logos at only $4,900

    To order, or for more information, contact Michelleb@wisconsinbikefed.org

    If you would like to see these signs in your community, please contact your local DPW, Parks and Recreation, Health Department, and/or local elected, and let us know so we can help with follow up.
