Kansas City’s Elmwood Bike Rodeo is a community event that promotes bicycle safety and education for children and families. The rodeo typically includes a variety of activities such as bike inspections, helmet fittings, and obstacle courses designed to teach kids how to properly handle and maintain their bicycles. There are also speakers on bike laws and safe riding practices. The goal of the Elmwood Bike Rodeo is to promote cycling as a fun and healthy mode of transportation while also educating participants on how to ride safely and offering them a chance to learn about, and connect with, community organizations and services. The Elmwood Bike Rodeo is a fun and educational experience for the whole family.

Held at the historic Elmwood Cemetery, the gently curving roadways make for the perfect route for young and old, alike. Bring the whole family and enjoy a scenic ride on a closed, paved road with NO vehicle traffic.

Attendees are encouraged to bring your own bike and participate in any number of our bike safety classes; or show your creative side at one of our fully stocked bike-decorating stations.

Come early, but plan to stay a while! We will be giving away 150 bikes and helmets on a first-come, first-served basis to children aged 6-12. There will be face painting and inflatables for the littles, and a delicious picnic lunch provided to ALL families – all completely free!

You will have the opportunity to connect with a variety of local vendors (and get more free stuff!); including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kansas City Public Library, and more.

This interactive, family-friendly event is the perfect way to teach children bike safety – a valuable educational opportunity disguised as a wholesome good time!

The Elmwood Bike Rodeo is part of the 2024 Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation Six Pack Cycling Series
