Children's bike safety rodeo returns to Snoqualmie

For the seventh year, Valley children can learn the ins and outs of safe cycling at the Tanner Jeans Memorial Bike Safety Rodeo, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at Cascade View Elementary School, Snoqualmie Ridge.

This is the largest bike safety event in the Pacific Northwest, bringing more than 1,500 children and parents for activities including free helmet and bike inspections, helmet replacements, shirts, safety certificates, food and beverages, games, balloons, face painting, and an antique car display.

The Tanner Jeans Memorial Foundation was formed six  years ago in response to the death of 7-year-old Tanner Jeans in a bicycle accident. The Foundation has supported various athletic scholarship, academic scholarship and child safety programs throughout the Snoqualmie Valley since its inception. It is dedicated to teaching kids to “Have Fun, Play Fair and Play Safe” and to ensuring that Tanner’s legacy lives on.
