The Dalton Police Department's Bike Unit will participate in a Dalton Bike Rodeo on Saturday, August 22nd from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the K-Mart on West Walnut Avenue.
The event is hosted by Amerigroup in partnership with Safe Kids: Dalton, the Dalton Police Department, and the Bear Creek Bicycle Company. Children will get a chance to ride through a safety obstacle course, getting safety tips on proper riding from Dalton Police officers. Safe Kids: Dalton will have technicians on site to perform bicycle helmet fittings and checks, as well as measuring children to make sure they're riding the right bikes for their size.
There will also be free food and games for guests, as well as free bicycle helmets for the first 40 attendees with parents present. Parents are encouraged to please bring their kids' bikes and helmets to the event. There will be bicycles available for children without bikes to ride through the bike rodeo course, but that supply is limited.
