NBU workers host event to promote safety
Elementary, have shiny twin “Wipeout" BMX bikes.
Both are fast and flashy.
Saturday was their second NBU rodeo.
“I stop when there’s a stop sign, and I learned signals last year,” Bryan said.
“That’s good,” his grandmother said, approvingly.
Both boys wear helmets, and so far, haven’t had bike accidents any more serious than the kind a young boy has when he’s skidding his tires for fun and excitement.
Morales wants to keep it that way.
“I teach them, ‘Stop, look and listen,’ and to be sure to look both ways,” Morales said. “I tell them to wear helmets and to never ride in the middle of the street.”
Theres a good reason for that — self preservation. Morales and the boys live at the intersection of Union and Main, not far from McKenna Memorial Hospital.
“People drive through there like there’s no children there," Morales said.
Preston Tyree of Austin, chairman of the education committee of the League of American Bicyclists and a member of the Austin Cycling Association, helped design the program for the SAFEHaven rodeo.
“We promote this as a service
to our riding community," he said.
The NBU-sponsored rodeo is the biggest in the area, he said.
“I can’t say enough good about NBU or how important this is,” he said. “Look at these volunteers—they’re employees out here on their day off.”
The rodeo is divided into three practical parts that take place after the bikes are registered and inspected.
The first part teaches basic bike handling skills, such as stopping at a designated point and how to properly change direction.
The second step includes an intersection where children are taught to stop, look both ways and proceed when the way is clear.
For the littlest riders, a sidewalk is set up to teach them the skills needed to safely ride there.
The third part puts all the skills together and attempts to teach children how to ride in traffic.
“We have a teenager here on a cycle who’s wearing a sign that says, “duck.’ We teach them that you can’t ride in front of trucks. We teach them the skills they need to ride in traffic, and then we practice in groups,” Tyree said.
Many children today ride in the backseats of cars and don’t grow to understand what their parents deal with when driving.
“We’re trying to teach them the skills here, but parents need to reinforce them,” Tyree said. "They’re only here once a year and won t be able to retain the

information without help.”
Each year, about 70 bicyclists die on Texas streets and roads. One third of them are kids between the ages of 5 and 12.
“The biggest single thing kids do wrong is ride out into traffic without looking,” fyree said. “If you look around here, we have
a lot of stop signs. We make them stop, look right and left. If we can get a kid to do that and put on a helmet, we can save a lot of these kids.”
And that, he said, was what the bike rodeo was about.
“If we can save one kid, its worth all the hours,” fyree said.
