Pop-Up Bike Rodeo Visits Lynn Park Summer Day Camp

Thursday, July 20, 2017

On Wednesday, July 19th, YNDC visited the Youngstown Parks Department’s Summer Day Camp program at Lynn Park with a Pop-Up Bike Rodeo!  A Bike Rodeo is an event that teaches safe bicycling behaviors to youth.  Campers were instructed on the proper way to wear a helmet, how to start and stop the bike, and practiced their skills riding on the trail throughout the park.  This event is part of the Safe Routes to School project, a collaboration between the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, the Youngstown City School District, the City of Youngstown, the Western Reserve Health Foundation the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, and The William Swanston Charitable Fund.  The projects seeks to improve health and well-being by encouraging youth and their families to become physically active by providing safe, fun ways to walk and bicycle.
