Williams Police Department Bicycle Rodeo

[slideshow_deploy id=’71125′]

Sixteen second and third grade students at Williams Elementary School were the lucky recipients of new bicycles at the conclusion of the 2015 Williams Bicycle Rodeo on May 21, 2015.  The rodeo is a two-day event conducted by the Williams Police Department each year as a bicycle safety education program.

One Hundred Twenty-One riders from the second and third grades actually competed in the rodeo.  All second and third grade students, two hundred twenty-five in all, received bicycle safety instruction flyers and new bicycle helmets.

The bicycle rodeo gives the police department an opportunity to instruct the students in bicycle safety and rules of the road including the importance of wearing a bicycle helmet when riding.  After a bicycle safety check, students participate in a “rodeo” of different events including circle ride, cone weave, slowest ride (balance), straightest ride (control), and maneuvering an intersection (signaling, stopping, looking both directions).  The boy and girl in each grade with the highest score receives a new bicycle.

The 2015 Williams Bicycle Rodeo winners in competition were: First Place Boy Second Grade: Rosendo Flores; First Place Girl Second Grade: Kailey Thompson; First Place Boy Third Grade: Daniel Brunner; First Place Girl Third Grade: Daisy Medina Velazquez.

Drawing bicycle winners were: Nathanial Madderra, Diego Sandoval, Yanet Flores, Cassidy Reyes, Cesar Flores, Diego Hernandez, Florecita Gonzalez, Luz Flores, Antonio Smith, Dylan Chapa, Isela Ambriz, and Yvette Bugarin.

The following donated to this year’s bicycle rodeo: Colusa Casino Resort, Vann Brothers, Recology Butte Colusa Counties, Williams Liquor & Food, Sanders’ Heavy Towing, Harper’s Auto Repair, Fouch & Son Pharmacy, Louis Cairo’s, Selover’s Inc., La Fortuna Bakery, Econolodge, Roy’s Supermarket, New Attitude Salon, and Monte & Kay Hill.

The Williams Area CHP and First Five Colusa County held a Bicycle Rodeo on Saturday, June 30, 2015 at the Colusa County Fairgrounds. Unfortunately due to graduation and fair schedules the event had two participants.

CHP Officer Kristen Murphy commented that the department plans on hosting another Bicycle Rodeo later in the year.
