    Our Cottonwood Kids’ Bike Day began with Mayor Tim Elinski leading a family friendly bicycle ride through town finishing at Cottonwood Elementary School.

    Immediately following the Mayor's Ride, the Yavapai County Community Health Services team (Nancy Gottschalk and Heather Klomparens) hosted a Bike Rodeo promoting bike safety and fun at the school. Throughout the morning and early afternoon, Principal Jessica Vocca carved out time so that students could participate in the rodeo. Verde Valley Bikes for Kids™ Director, Rich Leever, ensured that extra bikes were present so that each willing student could ride.

    The first Rodeo station was a class on bike safety by Nancy Gottschalk followed by an inspection and repair of each kid’s bike and helmet fitting by Randy Young and Jeff Johnson from the Verde Valley Bicycle Company.

    The police and fire department ensured the course was set up and volunteers Heather Parris, Mary Viereck, Marty Glinsky and Kevin Adams joined them in guiding the students along the course.

    Each year the Sedona Fire Department puts on a bike rodeo at one of our two public elementary schools, alternating between West Sedona School and Big Park School in the VOC. This year it was at the Big Park Elementary School on May12th.

    Kids are encouraged to ride their bikes to school that day. The VVCC assists cadets from the fire academy to set up approximately 10 obstacle course stations using cones and chalk lines. VVCC Members then assisted the kids as they rode through the courses. Kids range in age from primary grades through 8th grade. Don Nelms from Farmers Insurance gave away 4 new bikes to needy kids. 

    This Bike Rodeo is where FUN's founder was inspired to get more kids on bikes.
