Saturday, April 26 was a great day to get active and stay active in the community. From 10 am to noon, the 5th annual Bike Rodeo at Secrest Youth and Teen Center, 6820 W. 66th Avenue, Arvada, drew more than 250 young cyclists and families. Kids received free bike helmets, brushed up on safety skills, and got their bikes road-ready for spring. Other highlights included fire truck tours; “Siren Says,” the Arvada Police Department VW bug; martial arts demonstrations by Maestas Tae Kwon Do; and lots more. It was all free, thanks to support from these sponsors and partners: Chick Fil-A – 80th & Wadsworth, Hi Country Wire & Telephone, Saunders Construction, Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, Bicycle Village, Citizens Police Academy Arvada Alumni, the Arvada Fire District, the Arvada Police Department, the Regional Air Quality Council, Healthy Choices and Maestas Tae Kwon Do.
Active fun continued in the afternoon from noon to 3 pm, when the Arvada Tennis Center, 6430 Miller Street, hosted its free annual Tennis Open House. More than 100 visitors took part in activities for all ages and abilities, enjoyed prizes and refreshments, and received coupons for free lessons and court time. There were plenty of opportunities to visit with staff about the upcoming spring and summer activity choices.
This free event was made possible by sponsors Rocky Mountain Racquet Specialists, the Colorado Wheelchair Tennis
