Children’s Bike Rodeo

Next to Kinder Farm Park’s Main Visitor Center, there will be a free Children’s Bike Rodeo and Family Fun Ride. The Bike Rodeo is for children ages 4-10 and will include a short bike safety check, helmet instruction, and safe riding tips. It is then followed by a kids’ obstacle riding course that includes turns, stops and crossings. It will take about 30 minutes to complete.

From there, families may ride a 1-mile paved loop trail inside Kinder Farm Park. Children must be accompanied by a parent (on foot or bike).  Children are encouraged to bring their own bikes and must wear a helmet. Although these rides for kids are free, you need reserve a slot ahead of time.
