CHARLESTON, S.C. — Families are invited to take part in a Bike Rodeo presented by John L. Dart Library, the City of Charleston Police Department, and Safe Kids Trident Area. 

During the event, visitors will pedal through a bicycle obstacle course, learn safe biking tips and experience interactive community exhibits inside and outside the library. Attendees must bring a bicycle to use the obstacle course, and children younger than 10 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Arcadia Publishing generously donated a custom bicycle rack to honor the legacy of Cynthia Graham Hurd, a 31-year CCPL employee who was a victim of the June 2015 Emanuel AME Church shooting. Cynthia managed the John L. Dart branch from 1990-2011, and she was committed to serving the community. 

A plaque commemorating Hurd's lifelong dedication to literacy will be unveiled during the event.

This community program is proudly supported by Artist & Craftsman Supply, Charleston GOOD, Charleston Moves, Charleston Promise Neighborhood, the City of Charleston Fire Department, and the Youth Volunteer Corps. For more information, call 843-722-7550.
