The South Burlington Recreation and Parks Department, with sponsorship from Goss Cars, hosts a Bike Rodeo May 18, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Veterans Memorial Park, 1000 Dorset Street. The event teaches kids how to safely ride their bikes. 

The recreation department is partnering with Old Spokes Home and Local Motion to provide bike maintenance, proper bike adjustments and helmet fittings. South Burlington Police Department will also be on hand to help out.

“Come learn about some neat bike routes through town,” said South Burlington Recreation and Parks Department Recreation Specialist Ben McShane.

Bikes and helmets will be available to borrow for kids who do not have them. In addition, prizes will be raffled off to families who have preregistered.

For more information and to preregister, visit or call 802-846-4108.
