Biking is fun. Biking is cool

Remember the first time you rode your bike.?

Your Mom or Dad let go and whee! Off you went! The exhilaration, the fun, the freedom. And bicycling is still fun.

Let your child enjoy driving their bike and you have the confidence they are doing it safely. Come to the bicycle skills rodeo Saturday, May 12 at the South Elementary parking lot between 9:30 and 11:30.

Bring your child’s bike (or ride with them) and we’ll inspect it There will be a helmet check and some helmets for sale. Then your child will go through an obstacle course, learning how to watch for traffic, dodge rocks and pets.

There will be prizes and a certificate of completion. Your child should be between the ages of 5 and 10.

The event is sponsored by the Rum River Recreation and Resources board, Lions and Leos.

Biking is fun. Biking is cool.
