Each year thousands of children in the Central Okanagan come together for an exciting event put together by Traffic Safety Officer, Dave Gibson.
As Regional Traffic Safety Officer, Gibson runs Bike Rodeos, working with his team to ensure that the children in both the city of Kelowna and the Region of Central Okanagan have the knowledge they need to confidently operate their bikes and navigate their routes safely. Hosted in anticipation of Bike to School Week, 2012 saw 2093 students attend the rodeos which were held at 12 schools across the region.
