(Chillicothe) – The Ross County Health District and partners will be hosting a bicycle rodeo on June 27, 2021.

This family friendly event will provide bicycle education for all age groups, teaching how to safely ride a bicycle for both recreation and active transportation. If the bicycle rodeo course is completed, participants will be entered into a raffle to win a free bicycle provided by the CHC program; there will be four bicycles given away.

The first 145 people to register at the day of the event will receive a free helmet provided by the County Parks District and funded through American Pediatrics.

Other partners will be providing giveaways such as coloring books, bicycle equipment, etc. and conducting activities for participants to partake in. For example, the sheriff department will be conducting the fingerprint station for children and the library will be hosting a bicycle themed arts and crafts booth. It is encouraged to bring a bicycle to complete the obstacle course, but it is not necessary.
