Points and Scoring:

On the day of the rodeo, Officer Aguero from San Antonio Police Department will conduct a bicycle inspection looking at the condition of each bike.  He will award or deduct points for the following items [points in ( )]:

 

  • Front light in working order (flashlight ok with metal clamps) (5)

  • Bicycle horn or bell (5)

  • Red reflectors on rear (or light on rear that works) (10)

  • Chain guards missing (10)

  • Loose or broken (defective) chain guard (5)

  • Brakes not working (10)

  • Spokes (missing, broken, and/or loose) (5 pedal) (5 tire) (10)

  • Pedals (missing and/or broken) (5/pedal) (10)

  • Steering post (worn or loose) (5)

  • Saddle/seat (loose) (5)

  • Tire(s) defective (loose and/or warped) (5)

  • Chain too loose or too tight (5)


 

The highest total score for any child will be 200 points.  100 points can be awarded for bicycle inspection and 100 points for the course, consisting of four stations.  Each participant will be awarded 10 extra points for wearing a helmet, which can offset any deductions on the inspection.  

 

After the inspection, your child will ride through the four stations: 

 

  1. Balance (40) Ride as slowly as possible staying between 2 lines, should take 30 seconds or longer without touching the ground or hitting the lines.

  2. Steering (25) One trip through course at comfortable speed, keeping both wheels on path without touching the ground.

  3. Ride the Circle (20) One time around the circle at comfortable speed, staying on the circle without touching the ground.

  4. Maneuvering the Cones (15) Ride at comfortable speed between cones without touching cones, skipping cones or touching the ground.

 

Training wheels are allowed and those riders will be placed in a separate category for score comparison purposes.
