This year the Broward County Parks and Recreation Division will share bicycles, helmets, and bicycle rodeo equipment to agencies and organizations throughout Broward County. In order to use this equipment you must take this training. 

What will participants learn?
This approximately eight-hour workshop teaches participants to correctly fit a bicycle helmet, bicycle/pedestrian laws and safety tips, defensive walking, bicycling skills, and how to conduct a bicycle rodeo. Participants will ride bicycles to practice the skills they will teach children during rodeos and other educational settings. 

What do I need to bring?  
Wear comfortable clothes for bike riding. Please bring your own bicycle and helmet. While bicycles and helmets will be available for use, you may feel more comfortable and confident using your own equipment.
