May is “National Bike Month” and The Bike Rack is celebrating by presenting Bike Fest, an afternoon to promote safe cycling to young riders. The event will be held 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Sunday, May 3rd at the Bike Rack’s Omaha location (144th & Maple). Admission is free and the event includes free bike helmets* for kids who participate in the bike safe-riding rodeo, a drawing for 2 new bicycles, onsite bike mechanical check-ups, and free food from Jimmy Johns.
“We’re so grateful for our loyal base of incredible customers. We want to give back to Omaha by offering this event,” said Bike Rack owner Jim Carveth. “Omaha’s quickly becoming a bike-friendly community and we hope to instill safe, efficient riding habits in our next generation of cyclists.”
“Entertaining and education, bike rodeos teach young cyclists important riding and safety skills, while also sharing the rules of the road in a safe environment,” explained Jan Graham, League of American Cyclists Certified Instructor (LCI) for The Bike Rack. “We’re pleased to repeat last year’s rodeo and expand it into a community-wide event.”
