Title: Shirley Rominger Intermediate School Bicycle Rodeo
The Winters Police Department will partner with the California Highway Patrol- Woodland Office, Winters Combined Parent Teacher Association, Shirley Rominger Intermediate School, the City of Winters, the After School Program and many individual volunteers to help put on Bicycle Rodeos for the students of Shirley Rominger Intermediate School.
Bicycle Rodeos are interactive courses which teach basic bicycle safety skills. Participants rotate through educational stations, and then apply their newfound knowledge on active skills courses. Bike Rodeos provide children with the skills they need to ride independently in our community as part of a healthy life style.
This year Shirley Rominger Intermediate School will be holding their Bicycle Rodeo on March 15th. The rodeo is open to all SRIS students, who may use bicycles, scooters, skateboards, or roller skates to participate. A limited number of loaner bicycles are available for students who need them.
The bicycle rodeo utilizes bicycle safety equipment (safety cones, bicycles, bicycle helmets, and other equipment) purchased through donations in order to make sure every child can participate in these activities. Any equipment left over is used during future Bicycle Rodeos.
If you would like to support bicycle rodeo program and wish to donate, checks can be made payable to the “WPD Youth Services Program.” The program’s Federal Tax ID number is 94-6000457. A receipt can be provided for tax purposes if requested. All money donated will go towards the program.
