Bike Rodeo in Del Ray Tomorrow to Celebrate Opening of New Park

A bike rodeo tomorrow (Saturday) will help celebrate the launch of the Mount Jefferson Traffic Garden, a small park designed to help teach children about traffic rules in a safe environment.

Plans for the grand opening include a cycling event for children hosted by the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, to include lessons about key bicycle skills like turning and hand signals.

The event is being held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Mount Jefferson Park, located between the 300 blocks of Hume and Raymond avenues in Del Ray.

Local bicycle shops have also signed up to offer bicycle and helmet safety checks.

Adults are welcome, but the event is aimed at children ages 4-11.
