On Thursday, May 21, Thomas Paine Elementary hosted a Bike Rodeo with the help of volunteers from many community organizations. Students had a great time and learned a lot of safety information.
Community volunteers from the following groups helped our Thomas Paine students with the Bike Rodeo: C-U Public Health District, CUMTD/C-U SRTS Project, Neutral Cycle, City of Urbana (police and community development), members of Urbana District #116 and Thomas Paine Elementary School.
Some of the volunteers went above and beyond for the students. A representative from Neutral Cycle Shop noticed one student's bike was having issues and took the bike back to his shop, replaced her brake cables and handle grips for free! The student was then able to continue to participate in the Rodeo.
