Bring Your Bike (and helmet) to Community Fest!
Kids ages 4 -12 are invited to the Ewing Police Department’s and Ewing Green Team’s 2023 Community Fest Bike Rodeo. Aimed at teaching the rules of the road, as well as some safety tips for both the rider and their cycle, the event will run from 11am - 1 pm, Saturday, September 30th at the parking lot near the event Food Trucks.
Officers, along with volunteers from the Ewing Green Team and TCNJ students, will teach hand signals to be used while riding, as well as provide additional safety tips. Participants will also test their skills on the obstacle course, which will feature educational stops along the way. They’ll also learn when to watch out for pedestrians at cross walks and to watch out for cars.
Our bike rodeo also stresses how important it is to wear a helmet while riding. Helmet fittings and replacements will be provided by Capital Health (while supplies last). Kids will learn how to properly put on a helmet and when it’s time to transition to another bike or helmet.
Team members will be on hand to perform basic safety checks for those whose bikes need some attention.
With the support of our event sponsors, everyone can bike safely in the community. This event will be held rain or shine. Cancellation of event in case of truly inclement weather will be uploaded on Ewing Township’s social media outlets.
Pre - registration is recommended to make your experience at the Rodeo go more smoothly, but not required. For more information, contact our Community Relations officers Detective Irving Bruno at 609-882-1313 ext. 7013 or Detective Danielle Bethea at 609-882-1313 ext. 7781.

We are collaborating with the Boys and Girls Club Bike Exchange located at Capitol Plaza in Ewing to solicit donations of your old and dilapidated bikes to be refurbished by their volunteers and put to good use. Drop off your used bicycle at the Bike Rodeo during our hours of 11 am - 1 pm. Declutter your garage and storage areas and help make a child happy with a new bike!
(All proceeds benefit the Mercer County Boys & Girls Club. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County Bike Exchange is a volunteer-led enterprise that repairs donated bicycles and sells them at modest prices at its Ewing location at Capitol Plaza, raising funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County and promoting biking for transportation and pleasure among low-income families.)
