Whittier Bicycle Swap/ Rodeo
Sponsored by the Frederick Police Department,
Whittier Elementary School & the Bicycle Escape
Frederick, MD -- More and more children re riding bicycles. Many are riding to and from school either by themselves or with a parent. To support this trend and help keep our children safe, the Frederick Police Department, Whittier Elementary School, and the Bicycle Escape are putting on a Bicycle Swap/Rodeo at Whittier Elementary School on Saturday, November 19, 2011 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM.

This free Bicycle Swap/Rodeo will feature a bike inspection, helmet inspection, and numerous skills stations. Parents need only to bring their children with their bicycles and helmets. If you have a bicycle that is in need of a rider and is in good/ safe working condition, and you would like to donate it, please bring it. Everyone who can ride a bicycle is invited to attend. The course will be open from 1:00pm until 3:30pm and it takes approximately fifteen minutes to complete.

This Bicycle Swap/ Rodeo will begin in the front parking lot at the Whittier Elementary School located at 2400 Whittier Drive, Frederick, Maryland 21702.

For more information, please contact Officer Mike Figgins, at 301.600.2117 / or Tim Davis, City Planner at 301.600.1884/
