The Foundation for Leon County Schools invites you to their annual Schools Stomping Out Type-2 Diabetes event to be held at Tom Brown Park on Saturday, February 23, 2013. They will have the following cycling-related activities plus much more:
BICYCLE RODEO @ 9 AM
A Bicycle Rodeo is a bicycle skills event which provides an opportunity for bicycle riders to practice
and develop skills that will help them to become better bicycle riders. We will go over basic bicycle
safety maintenance, such as ABCs – Air in tires, Brakes and Controls that work. We will show riders
how to balance, safely avoid obstacles, and negotiate driveways and intersections.
WORLD’S SLOWEST BICYCLE RACE @ 10 AM
Pretty self-explanatory. The last person to cross the finish line without dabbing their feet on the
ground wins. This is the ultimate test of balance and coordination!
BICYCLE BULLRING @ 10:30 AM
Very similar to the Slow Race, riders are corralled into a “Bullring” and try to outwit each other by
getting the other rider to lose their balance without physical contact.
The last person to stay upright (i.e without dabbing their feet on the ground) wins!
OBSERVED TRIALS – 9 AM TO 12 NOON
We set up a ridiculously impossible obstacle course and let expert riders ride through the course. The
last few meters of the course involve kids throwing “soft” objects (like nerf balls) at the riders. This is
going to be a hoot for both kids and riders!!!
First, Second, and Third-Place finishers are determined by our panel of judges.
THE BEST BICYCLE ADVENTURE RACE @ 11:30 AM
Brought to you by B.E.S.T. (Bike Eat Shop Tallahassee), the BEST Bicycle Adventure Race takes you
on a journey outside Tom Brown Park and around the City. This is an adventure-style, bikemessenger-inspired bicycle race, where you are given a “travel manifest”. You are to proceed to
numerous checkpoints all around Tallahassee and perform “mystery” challenges like ………………..
Well… if we tell you, they won’t be mysteries any longer. Guaranteed fun for the adventurous!
Please note that this race starts at Tom Brown Park and ends at a locally-owned restaurant. Riders
under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
