On April 17th Basalt Recreation Department and the Basalt Police Department held a Bike Rodeo for Elementary Students who were out of school for the day. We set up a course to teach bicyclists how to properly signal a turn or stop, how to avoid obstacles in the road, what to do when chased by a dog and basic agility tests. Basalt Ambulance and Rural Fire Protection District had vehicles to tour as well as the Basalt Police Department. Aspen Valley Hospital provided helmet fittings and free helmets to cyclists without them or with inadequate ones.

The radar gun was the hit of the day as bicyclists and runners alike wanted to check out just how fast they can go, go, go!
