The “Bicycle Skills Rodeo Train the Trainer Workshop” is intended to give you the tools you need to run a successful event that provides a strong educational component for the participants. Simply stated, it is bicycle safety education by practice! The training will take place on Saturday, March 10, 9:00 am – noon at the NC Cooperative Extension, Henderson County Center, across from the ball fields in Jackson Park.
