SAMPLE FLOW CHART FOR A BICYCLE RODEO
One inherent problem with Bicycle Rodeos is that their very nature leads to a bottle neck of participants in the beginning. Rodeos are managed easiest when the participants are segregated in to groups.
The general flow should go from one registration area to multiple bike inspection points. From the bike inspection they should flow into their assigned groups. During this "holding" phase in their groups it is a good time to talk about helmet fit, bike fit, hand signals and rules of the road.
Groups may do any of the 3 stations in any order. The Rodeo leader should signal when the groups are to move. The Slow Race should always be the last event and all riders can participate at the same time (although still against other group members). This increases the excitement and fun of this culminating event.
