Ray’s Bike and Mower and Mundelein Community Connection to Host Annual Bike Rodeo and Bike Parade

The annual 2019 Bike Rodeo, sponsored by Ray’s Bike and Mower, 612 E. Hawley Street and Mundelein Community Connection, will be held on Sunday, June 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Fairhaven Plaza parking lot. This popular family event is offered to the community FREE of charge. The Mundelein Police Department, the Mundelein Fire Department, the Mundelein Park District, and Ace Hardware also will participate in the event. To add to the festivities, music will be provided by H & H Productions.

Mundelein families with young children are invited to participate in this FREE fun and educational event, focusing on bicycle safety, bike-related activities, safe bike riding, biking in our great park system and throughout the beautiful Lake County trial system. Participants can learn how to properly fit a helmet, receive basic bike inspections, take a fire truck ride, get tips on family-safe bike rides, ride along a
bicycle obstacle course, obtain copies of the Lake County trail system map, and talk with knowledgeable riders about biking in our community.

Each participant ages 3 to 13 will receive a free raffle ticket for a chance to win one of three bicycles from Ray’s Bike and Mower. Additionally, there will be a Bicycle Decorating Contest, and a Bike Parade. Participants are invited to decorate their bicycle at home or at the event. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place contest winners! Attendees will be treated to a FREE hot dog lunch, with chips and cookies (while supplies last). Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

A Family Bike Ride is also planned for kids 8 and over accompanied by a parent. The family ride will be led by 2 Police Officers from the Mundelein Bike Patrol. All bike ride participants must wear a helmet and attend a brief safety orientation before the ride. The ride will begin at 12:15 p.m. from the Ray’s Parking Lot.

The Bike Rodeo will conclude with the raffle drawings and bike decorating contest prizes. To end the day on an especially sweet note, participants will be treated to a FREE cup of Greg’s Custard (while supplies last)!
