Help FBO pass a Bike Helmet law for Minors

Flagstaff Biking needs the support of Flagstaff residents to pass this ordinance that would require minors younger than 18 years of age to wear a bike helmet when biking. The specifics of the law are not ironed out, you can help us by giving your comments and we ask you to provide us with a letter of support that we can present to the city of Flagstaff council.

Volunteers needed for Bicycle Rodeo!

FBO will present a Bicycle Rodeo to the third and fourth grade of Kinsey Elementary on Wednesday, September 24th.  We are looking for volunteers from 9:30am-2pm.  This is a great opportunity to teach children the rules of the road and to educate them about the importance of wearing a helmet.  They leave with new knowledge (and go home and tell their parents!) and you leave knowing you made a difference! 

FBO is awarded $38,000 Safe Routes to School Grant!

Flagstaff Biking Organization has been awarded a grant through the national Safe Routes to School program to expand their existing Bicycle Safety Education Program. In the 2007 school year, FBO will offer bicycle rodeos to five Title nine elementary schools, offer incentives to children who ride their bikes to school and purchase much needed new equipment to assist in this expansion.
