Volunteer Opportunity: MoBikeFed's Elmwood Bike Rodeo May 6th in Kansas City - giving away 150 kids bikes

This year the Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation is organizing the Elmwood Bike Rodeo May 6th in Kansas City.  We will give away 150 bicycles to area kids who need them, fit the bikes, and have bike safety information and an area for kids to ride their new bikes safely - and a LOT more. The event will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, 4900 E Truman Road, Kansas City MO. 

We need about 15 volunteers to help with bike fitting and to run the bicycle safety rodeo.

Could you help Saturday, May 6th?

About the Elmwood Bike Rodeo

Held at the historic Elmwood Cemetery, the gently curving roadways make for the perfect route for young and old, alike. Bring the whole family and enjoy a scenic ride on a closed, paved road with NO vehicle traffic.

Attendees are encouraged to bring your own bike and participate in any number of our bike safety classes; or show your creative side at one of our fully stocked bike-decorating stations.

Come early, but plan to stay a while! We will be giving away 150 bikes and helmets on a first-come, first-served basis to children aged 6-12. There will be face painting and inflatables for the littles, and a delicious picnic lunch provided to ALL families – all completely free!

You will have the opportunity to connect with a variety of local vendors (and get more free stuff!); including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kansas City Public Library, and more.

This interactive, family-friendly event is the perfect way to teach children bike safety – a valuable educational opportunity disguised as a wholesome good time!
