Laramie Bicycle Safety Day May 4, 2013

May is National Bike Month http://www.bikeleague.org/programs/bikemonth/  and to kick it off, we decided to host an event for kids. Free Helmets, stickers and a
bicycle rodeo sounded like a winning combination.

The 1st Annual Laramie Bicycle Safety Day was a huge success. The event started @ high noon....and we had families lined up down First Street in Historic Downtown Laramie, WY.

Smiling faces for the whole family!

57 of 60 Giro/Bell helmets http://www.giro.com/us_en/  were protecting the heads of future generations by 1:44 p.m.
Looking good people!!

The perfect day for a violin recital and a new helmet!

At 3:30 p.m., the last three helmets all went to the same family. Thanks for "fitting the bill".

A Bike Rodeo? Of course, Wyoming seems like
the perfect place for a rodeo. Limbo anyone?
