  • Bike Rodeo

    When: Friday, May 20th, 5:30-7:30 PM

    Where: Thurston Elementary School Parking Lot

    The Thurston Bike Rodeo began with funding from Safe Routes to School A worldwide movement to make it safe, convenient and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school” (and beyond.) The event has taken root and lives on at Thurston with the amazing help from caring partners in our community.


    This year, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital's Pediatric Trauma Center is offering the Thurston Elementary School community high-end ProRider adjustable bike helmets at a discounted rate of $7 per helmet.   A representative from C.S. Mott Children's Hospital will be at the Thurston Bike Rodeo on May 20th with the ordered helmets and will also help fit helmets properly on children.  The money for the helmets will be collected at the event. To order fill out this Google Form by May 1st.


    If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please sign up here.
