Cycling Safety

Heart Niagara’s Bike Rodeo

Heart Niagara offers Bike Rodeos for school and community groups to develop their cycling skills and learn about cycle safety. Bike Rodeos teach people about helmet fit, traffic safety, signalling, bike fit and bike safety, and allow you/your child to practice your cycling skills. Our instructors are nationally certified with CAN-BIKE, Canada’s leading cycling education program.

Individuals ages 8 and up are all welcome to participate! (We recommend that participants have some experience with riding a bike. Kids that are unable to ride a bike without training wheels will require one-on-one adult support from a parent or volunteer

staff). Inquire about hosting a bike rodeo by emailing info@heartniagara.com.

Here is a list of items that you and/or your child will need to participate:

  • Bring a bike in good working order
  • Bring a bicycle helmet (Other safety helmets (e.g. hockey helmets) are not acceptable. The bike helmet must be approved by the CSA, ASTM, the Snell Foundation or ANSI. Check the inside of your helmet for the appropriate sticker)
  • Wear closed-toe shoes and appropriate clothes for riding
  • Bring a water bottle and snacks

 We strongly recommend you bring a bicycle lock – Heart Niagara will not be held responsible for lost or stolen equipment

Join Heart Niagara for a fun and educational event! We are very excited to teach cycling safety skills and look forward to seeing you there!
