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.

  • 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

2021 Classes are completed. If your community is interested in hosting a training in 2022 please fill out this form

QR code based DIY Trainings and lessons

In 2021 Bike Fed, WisDOT, and The City of Mensasha launched a new feature of the Teaching Safe Bicycling program. Sign were installed along The Fox Cities Paper Trail that include scannable QR codes for each station of the video series. This will allow families or community groups to watch the short videos, access the downloadable slides, then practice the skills at their own pace or on their own schedule. We look forward to bringing these DIY educational opportunities to more communities in 2022!
