The Bike Safety Rodeo returned to the Squamish Elementary Schools on May 16, 17. & 18, 2023.
This event is sponsored by the local RCMP, Squamish Rotary Club, and the school teachers. This year it was held at Brackendale, Garibaldi Highlands, Squamish, and Mamquam. Hundreds of schoolkids participated.
The kids bring their bikes to school and class by class, they have their bikes and helmets checked. Then they are challenged to a number of skill tests under the direction and watchful eyes of the RCMP officers and Rotarians - ride a straight line, navigate a slalom course, do a figure eight, and safely cross at an intersection.
This event has been a feature of the May school calendar for over 45 years as illustrated in the June 3, 1976  and June 3, 1980 editions of the Squamish Times.
