The Green Bay Packers, Bellin Health and the Safe Kids Coalition will team up for an event to promote bike safety on Monday, Aug. 6, at Lambeau Field.
The event, which is part of the Titletown Wellness initiative, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in Lambeau Field’s east parking lot adjacent to the Johnsonville Tailgate Village.
The bike rodeo will feature free bike helmet fittings, a free bike helmet giveaway and a safety course for children to learn and practice bicycle riding skills. Kids’ activities, including face painting and balloon twisters, will be offered and participants will have the opportunity to win signed Packers memorabilia.
Children can take part in the free bike helmet fitting between 9:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Free bike helmets will be available for the first 800 children, or while supplies last. For those who have helmets, representatives will be on hand to check sizing and make adjustments. Safety experts will educate children and parents alike on the importance of wearing bike helmets.
Children may then take part in a newly redesigned bike obstacle course, instructed by the De Pere Police Department, which will teach them safe biking skills.
The bike safety event celebrates the Green Bay Packers’ time-honored tradition in which children bring their bikes to training camp and allow the football players to ride the bikes between the locker room and the practice facilities.
