LE MARS, Iowa (KCAU) — The Le Mars RAGBRAI Committee hosted a Bicycle Rodeo to promote bike safety this week.
The event was held on May 13 at 5:30 pm in the Olson Cultural Events Center parking lot.
Organized in partnership with the Le Mars Rotary Club and Plymouth County Cyclists, the event was geared toward new and youth cyclists, but will have tips for all ages and levels as well as prizes, giveaways, and free food.
“Bicycle safety is important every year, not just when we’re welcoming RAGBRAI riders to the community,” Julie Hurt, executive RAGBRAI co-chair, said. “We look forward to educating both riders and drivers on how to safely and enjoyably share the road year-round.”
In addition to free food and prizes, attendees could bring their bikes and equipment for hands-on bike riding activities to teach and promote bike safety.
