Bike Rodeo Tours Delaware Schools

In June, John Mullen, Joe Bucovetsky, and Ted Foglietta wrapped the spring 2013 leg of a statewide pedestrian/bicycle safety training program in Delaware. At the request of five local school districts, they hosted a “bike rodeo” to provide instruction to children in grades 4-6, with the focus on developing necessary skills to safely use a bicycle. The assignment was under our current Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program Consultant agreement with DelDOT. The SRTS Program works with schools to encourage children to safely walk and bike to school and also makes grants available for safety and traffic improvements in the vicinity of schools.
