Bike Safety Rodeo for kids kicking off in Silver City

The annual Bike Safety Rodeo in Silver City takes place July 18. Admission is free.

Western Safe Routes to Schools will offer a free bike safety rodeo for ages 5-12 on Tuesday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Silver City basketball court (next to the town park and School House/Community Center, 385 High St.).

Kids will learn road rules and safety, and participate in fun bike maneuvers and exercises. They'll receive new bike helmets if they do not have one yet.

The event is part of the town's annual free summer program and is held in partnership with Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties.

Each summer since 2003, the historic Comstock community of Silver City has offered free, public arts and science programming.

Silver City is within the historic Comstock district, three miles from Virginia City, seven miles from Dayton, and 12 miles from Carson City. Most events take place at the Silver City School House and/or town park.
