Chad Onken, owner of Iowa Small Engine & Bike Shop, will inspect every bike to ensure they are safe and ready to ride. In addition to the safety instruction and agility course, every participant will receive a certificate from Manning Mayor, Joe Maas, as proof of their completion of the course.

Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the rodeo along with their bike and helmet. Please register online here to guarantee the complimentary helmet is the right size for your child.
