The Iowa Bicycle Coalition, a leading organization dedicated to promoting bicycling as a safe and enjoyable means of transportation and recreation, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau. The grant will enable the Iowa Bicycle Coalition to develop and implement an innovative program called Bike Rodeo in a Box.
The Bike Rodeo in a Box program aims to enhance bicycle safety education and promote responsible biking practices among the state’s youngest cyclists. The program will distribute ten specially designed kits, containing a comprehensive range of materials and resources, to communities and schools throughout Iowa. Each kit will enable participants to organize and conduct their own bike rodeos, fostering safe biking skills and awareness within their local communities.
