Bicycle Project Manuals

You can learn more about bicycling by completing one of the project activity guides:

Project manuals may also be available to purchase at the Marion County Extension office, and older editions of manuals (if available) are free. Contact us to ask about availability!

Showcasing What You’ve Learned

You can create a poster exhibit to showcase what you’ve learned while working on your project. Project exhibits are submitted for judging at the annual Marion County 4-H Showcase.

Exhibit Guidelines

Score Cards

Advancing to the State Fair

  • No, bicycle project exhibits are not eligible to advance to the State Fair. However, each county can send one junior (grades 3 - 7) and one senior (grades 8 - 12) to the State 4-H Bicycle Rodeo held during the Indiana State Fair. Contact us if you are interested in representing Marion County. Rodeo activities you will have to complete include a written exam, maintenance/safety check, parts identification, skill event, balance test, figure eight steering and balance tests, and single, double and zigzag obstacle course.

Cloverbuds (Grades K-2)


  • Bicycling is an excellent activity to stay healthy while having fun! Cloverbuds may exhibit a poster or notebook on one of the following:
    • Parts of a bike
    • Safety equipment
    • Hand signals
    • Street signs
    • My bike adventures
  • Cloverbud projects are for exhibition only (not judged), so there are no score cards, and exhibits are not eligible to advance to the State Fair.
