Learn proper techniques for riding safely on city streets during the upcoming free bike rodeo.

Join FitWorth and the Fort Worth Safe Communities Coalition for an evening focused on promoting cycling safety for kids and adults at 6 p.m. July 12 at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 501 W. Felix St.

The free bike rodeo is part of the Tour de Fort Worth, Mayor Betsy Price’s celebration of the Tour de France that challenges cyclists to ride for 21 consecutive days.

Two bike courses will be set up — one for adults and one for younger riders. Learn how to navigate hazards, ride with others and be aware on the streets.

Bring your own bike or use one of the bikes available from Fort Worth Bike Sharing.

Cowboy Santas has provided 25 children’s bikes that will be raffled off at the end of the event. The bikes come with a new helmet from Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop and Berenson Injury Law.

The UNT Health Sciences Center mobile vision van will provide free screenings for children.
