Melon City Bike Club partnering with Parks and Recreation to host Inaugural Bike Rodeo and Trail Ride

The Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department and the Melon City Bike Club invite the community to join in on the fun at the Melon City Bike Rodeo and Family Trail Ride from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, weather permitting.

This event is free for all ages to attend with activities geared toward children ages 4 to 12-years-old. Pre-registration is not required.

The main parking lot of the Muscatine Soccer Complex will host a fun bicycle obstacle course, safe riding instruction, a bike safety check station and more. Helmets are required to participate in both the bike rodeo and trail ride. Free bike helmets will be provided to participants while supplies last.

Put your safe riding skills to the test with the whole family during the trail ride immediately following the bike rodeo. Volunteers will escort riders along City recreational trails from the Muscatine Soccer Complex to Deep Lakes Park and back.

The Melon City Bike Club and Muscatine Parks and Recreation are excited to invite the entire community to the first year of this free, fun event. For more information, please contact the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department at (563) 263-0241.
