The Copley Police Department sponsors an annual Bike Rodeo. The event is held in Montrose in the parking lot of the Home Depot. This program is for elementary-aged children and is designed to encourage safe bike riding techniques.
Eddy’s Bike Shop employees are on hand to conduct safety inspections of each child’s bike and make any minor adjustments on the spot. Children receive a free bike helmet if they need one. Children can ride their bikes through several stations, and an obstacle course, and learn how to obey a traffic signal.
Local businesses participate in the event with handouts for the children, and Home Depot provides refreshments.
This event is free to the public and is another Copley Police Department Community Policing activity.
UPDATE JUNE 2023:
A big THANK YOU to all who participated in the annual Bike Rodeo this year! To the participants, businesses and their employees, Copley Police Officers and Service Department. Over 100 kids came and had a fun filled afternoon! Another shout-out to Dick's Sporting Goods, Planet Fitness, Target and Walmart for donating bikes to be raffled, and Home Depot for providing all the refreshments. It wouldn't be a success without each and every one of you. Below is a link to the drone video, and another link to the pictures from the 2023 Bike Rodeo!! Thank you very much and have a fabulous summer everyone!!
