Mi:Madison Heights Bike Rodeo 6/10/2023

MADISON HEIGHTS — The Madison Heights Police Department will hold a Bike Rodeo June 10 with giveaways and safety checks as part of an effort to build bonds with the people they serve.

“Residents will get to talk about the community with the police, face-to-face, without the stress of a difficult situation like an emergency,” said Madison Heights City Councilman Sean Fleming, who also serves on the Crime Commission. “They can discuss the issues that matter most to them.”

The rodeo will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 10, across two locations: the Madison Heights Police Department, 280 W. 13 Mile Road, and Civic Center Park, right behind it at 360 W. 13 Mile Road.
A bike giveaway will be sponsored by the Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union, while the first 200 children in attendance will receive free bike helmets from Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, which they can decorate at a separate station.

Participants are also encouraged to bring their bicycles for free safety checks by Trek Bicycle Corp., and there will be an obstacle course for them to test their riding skills, as well. All visitors are also welcome to tour the police station, see the police and fire vehicles up close, and participate in games.

In addition, the Madison Heights Lions Club will be grilling hot dogs. There will also be a group offering child ID kits. Others involved include the Arts Board, the library and Community Coalition, each with their own booths, along with various sponsors.
