Tehachapi Valley Parks and Recreation Hosts T-Town Bike Ride and CHP Bike Rodeo | New
TEHACHAPI – The Tehachapi Valley Parks and Recreation District hosted an event called “T-Town Bike Ride 2021” with the Tehachapi Police Department and the Mojave Region CHP hosting a bike rodeo for kids 14 years old and under; the event took place at the Tehachapi municipal park and took place on September 24, 2021. The bike ride started early in the day with several people including Kern County 2sd District Supervisor Zack Scrivner and his family, City and County officials of Kern 2sd District Supervisor Field Representative Laura Lynne Wyatt and her family join in the fun.
The Tehachapi Town Police Department / Mojave Region CHP hosted a bike rodeo, which was held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the same location where children 14 and under were able to bring their bikes and their helmets to participate in the rodeo. The Bike Rodeo is designed to teach children the rules of the road relating to safe cycling and driving on public roads; it is also designed to promote bicycle safety for cyclists on residential streets. Mojave Area CHP Commander Lt. John Williams and Public Information Officer (PIO) Aaron Maurer were on hand for the bike rodeo, along with Mojave Area CHP members and volunteers of the Tehachapi City Police Department. There was a draw after the rodeo where a few bikes were drawn as well as various prizes awarded.
The Mojave Desert News would like to thank the Tehachapi Valley Parks and Recreation District, Mojave area CHP, Tehachapi Police Department, Kern County 2sd District Supervisor Zack Scrivner and his Field Representative Laura Lynne Wyatt and the residents of Tehachapi for giving us access to this event; hope to see everyone next year.
