North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Council Member Mariann Dalimonte in partnership with the Port Washington Police Department and Bicycle Playground are proud to once again host a Bicycle Rodeo & Helmet Safety event on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 at Manorhaven Beach Park (Main Parking Lot - Skating Rink). The hour long fun and educational event will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will provide children with the opportunity to participate in a series of courses that allows them to practice bicycle safety and agility skills. Attendees will also have the opportunity to have their bicycle’s tires, seats, handlebar height, chains, and helmets checked.
“I am proud to once again to be hosting this popular event. We had a tremendous response for our event earlier this year and wanted to extend this opportunity to more children,” said Council Member Mariann Dalimonte. “This event teaches the importance of wearing a bike helmet and obeying traffic rules. Now that summer is fast approaching, we want to make sure that everyone can have fun outside and stay safe.”
“As part of this great partnership with the Town, the Port Washington Police are committed to the safety of our children, as they enjoy the many benefits of Bicycle Rodeos,” said Port Washington Police Sergeant Peter Griffith.
The event is FREE and all participants must bring their own bicycles and helmets. Attendees must register in advance by calling 311 to RSVP.
