Marshalltown Christian School students gathered for the 2013 Bicycle Rodeo sponsored by the Marshalltown Police Department and the Iowa Valley Bicycle Club.
The students were instructed in bicycle safety, hand signals, proper stopping at stop signs and also provided with their bicycle registration certificates in the event their bikes were lost or stolen.
Members of the Iowa Valley Bicycle Club were on hand to provide safety helmets to each student, instructing them of the proper use and adjustment for the perfect fit for head protection.

As the weather improves and children are outdoors riding their bikes, they were reminded to practice safe bicycle riding skills, and all students pledged to wear their helmets.
