Last weekend, Assemblyman Ed Ra (R- Franklin Square) hosted a Bike Rodeo at Garden City Middle School for children ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade. More than 15 riders had their bicycles inspected, helmets fit-checked, and practiced skills like hand signals, lookbacks, and braking.
“Many of us have fond memories as kids of spending our summers outside riding our bikes surrounded by our friends. It’s super important we pass that tradition on to the next generation and give them the knowledge and tools to get outside and have fun safely. Our bike rodeo was a great success, and I look forward to continuing to share these lessons and experiences with youth in our community,” said Ra.
