  • Looking back without swerving
  • Braking techniques
  • Riding straight while missing hazards
  • Crossing busy streets safely

The Mead Pool Parking Lot was the location for the rodeo. The rodeo was on May 5.

According to the Appleton Parks and Recreation Department, the next Bike Rodeo is scheduled for Wednesday, June 9 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
