Permission Form

All participants must submit a Guardian Approval and Student Waiver form to participate in the Bike Rodeo. The form (and letter) can be downloaded at the button below or a hard copy can be picked up at the Hickory front office. The Guardian Approval and Student Waiver must be signed by one parent/guardian and returned to the front office by Monday, April 15, 2024. 

Event Information:


Hickory Elementary School will be participating in a citywide bicycle safety program on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 from 3pm-4:30pm. The event is open to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.


A written bike safety test will be given and then there will be a series of six skill tests:

●    Balancing at a slow speed

●    Straight line riding

●    Weaving

●    Circling

●    U-turn in a narrow lane

●    Stop on the spot

A total score will then be determined, and every participant will receive a certificate. The top finishers will go to the Torrance Firefighters Association-sponsored District-wide finals at Victor Elementary School on Saturday, May 11, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. We urge your students to participate so they have the opportunity to win awards at the District-wide event. If you have any questions, contact the Bike Rodeo Chair, Brittany Resendez, To Participate: If your student wants to participate, return the permission slip to the front office by Monday, April 15, 2024. 

Transporting your student’s bike:

If your student rides the bus or comes to school by some other means, please make arrangements to bring the bike anytime before 9 a.m. Bikes must be locked in the bike racks in front of the school.

Ensure the bike is in good working order:

Be sure to check that bike tires are pumped up, the brakes work, etc. If their bike is unsafe they won’t be able to participate.

Helmets are mandatory: Your child will not be allowed to participate without one. Remember it is a state law that minors must wear an approved bicycle helmet. It is also a TUSD policy (No. 474.82) that all students must wear a helmet when riding to and from school.

If you need accommodations or modifications for the bike rodeo obstacles, please reach out to and we'll help!
