Harborfields High School’s Interact Club held a bike rodeo for middle and elementary school students on April 28. The Bike Rodeo was organized to encourage and teach bike safety to younger students. Due to Covid-19, the club had to find new and creative ways to continue to engage with the community safely.
Members of the Interact Club navigated younger students through safety tactics and an obstacle course. The students received a AAA bike safety certificate upon completion. Additionally, members of the Huntington Bike Club were in attendance to help fill bike tires with air, correctly fit helmets and give some bike riding tips of their own.
“The Bike Rodeo had an amazing turnout,” school media specialist Jill Weiler said. “We couldn’t have been a success without the student volunteers, Key Club, Tri-Fit, AAA and the Huntington Bike Club.”
