Optimist Youth Safety Program

The Stanley Park Optimist Club has been holding an annual bike rodeo since 1985.  While the location has changed several times over the years, interest has not and the event now draws 150 - 400 participants (depending on the weather!)  Usually there are refreshments for all participants, gifts & lucky door prizes, bike safety checkups/tuneups, entertainment by Erick, face-painters and lots of fun - all at no charge through the courtesy of the Optimist Club of Stanley Park, donations and sponsorship from local businesses and, for the last several years, in collaboration with the Stanley Park Community Centre.  We thank the Centre's staff and volunteers for helping to enhance this annual event.  May there be many more! 

Donations are always welcome to help cover the expenses of this "all-free" event..
