Bike Rodeo and Legion barbecue on June 23

This year the event will take place at the Senior Centre parking lot across from Fadear Park

Barriere youngsters thoroughly enjoyed the 2012 Bike Rodeo

On Sunday, June 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Barriere Emergency Services and Success by Six will be hosting their 2nd Annual Bike Rodeo.  This year the event will take place at the Senior Centre parking lot across from Fadear Park.

There will be a registration table where participants start out with a bike and helmet check, then pick up their test sheet and ticket for the draws.  Participants will be put through four stations testing their biking skills and knowledge.  Members of the local emergency services will be at each station to help the kids through each course and grade them on their efforts.

There will be great prizes once again for participants, with new bikes, bike helmets and other goodies to be awarded at the end of the event which is meant to be fun, educational and encourage safe biking practices.  The bike rodeo will run alongside the Royal Canadian Legion and Barriere RCMP community barbecue, that will be taking place the same day and directly across the street in Fadear Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  There will be food, drinks and fun for everyone at no charge.  Organizers say they are expecting a bouncy castle, face painting, music, and other things for families to take part in.  Don’t miss a great time with the whole family on Sunday, June 23.
