A Spring Bicycle Fair will be held Saturday morning, April 30 at the Corrales Recreation Center. The event, sponsored by the Corrales Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, is meant for children and adults focusing on safety, basic repairs, bike etiquette and “rules of the road.” Children aged 4 to 14 can participate in a bike rodeo that will be set up on the rec center tennis courts. Prizes will be awarded.
The event starts at 10 a.m. and concludes at noon. Volunteers are sought for several of the activities planned. Bike retailers will showcase popular models. Instruction will be offered for proper fitting for a bike helmet, bike maintenance, changing tires and signaling in traffic for turning and stopping. A presentation also will be made for how bike riders should safely deal with encountering horses and horse riders on Corrales trails. The bike etiquette talk will be targeted to adults.
Every child participating in the day’s activities will be offered a bike riding helmet, fitted to each head. Among other demonstrations is that for electric bikes, presented by the Kickstand Cycle Shop.
