Walk 'N' Roll 2005 :: May 14 - May 21

Since 1997, the Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study, through its Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee, has commemorated May as National Bike Month by organizing a program entitled, Walk 'N' Roll. Walk 'N' Roll 2005 is a week-long celebration of bicycling, walking, and in-line skating as safe, environmentally friendly, and healthy alternatives to motor vehicles.

SPECIAL WORKSHOP

"BICYCLE RODEO TRAIN-THE-TRAINER"

Thursday, May 19, 2005
4:00 - 6:00 PM

Johnson City High School - Large Cafeteria.
666 Reynolds Rd., Johnson City

The public is invited to attend this FREE workshop.

Come and learn from Lois Chaplin, Bicycle Safety Specialist at Cornell University.

  • Learn how to conduct a "Bicycle Rodeo", which is an event used to teach children and their parents about bicycle operation skills and safety.
  • As demand has grown for more Bicycle Rodeos in the Greater Binghamton area, the supply of volunteers needed to conduct them has been in short supply. You can help your community to continue to encourage safe bicycling by taking advantage of this training, and ensuring that bicycle rodeos will continue to be conducted.

Everyone is encouraged to BRING YOUR BIKE AND HELMET!
