Free tune-ups, free bicycles, and free helmets.

Kids are encouraged to bring their bikes for a complimentary tune-up, or even pick out a free bike, courtesy of the generous donations from the community. The Bike Rodeo isn’t just about riding—safety comes first.

There will be bike safety instruction, and the Billings Clinic Level 1 Trauma Center will ensure every young rider is fitted with a helmet if they don’t already have one. And of course, no event is complete without refreshments to keep everyone energized!

For thrill-seekers, Pedal United and Pedal Imperium will put on a fun show of trick riding and aerial stunts. Kids can test their skills on an exciting obstacle course, making this not just an event, but an adventure. Bikes have been generously donated by the public and have been cleaned, repaired, and ready to gift to families in need.

While it's too late to donate a bicycle this year, tax-deductible donations can also be made online at
