Huge turnout for bike rodeo

We just wanted to thank everyone that came to the Tanner Jeans Memorial Bike Safety Rodeo this past weekend. We had our largest turnout ever — rough estimates suggest that over 2,500 people came through the rodeo.

The Snoqualmie Police Department provided bike safety instruction for hundreds of kids and, if needed, we got them outfitted with new helmets.

Dirt Corps did a fantastic job checking every child’s bike to ensure that it was safe for riding this summer. They also provided many kids with safety instruction when riding in the Snoqualmie Bike Park, located off of Snoqualmie Parkway. Radio Disney was a huge hit and provided many kids with new safety gear sets, bikes, boards and more fun prizes.

In five years, we have managed to become the largest bike safety rodeo in Washington. That is quite an accomplishment — one that we could never have attained without the support of parents and kids like you.

Remember to have fun, play fair and, more importantly, play safe this summer.

Remembering Tanner,
