Eight teenagers wanted as team members for bike challenge

Sign up for bike challenge competition at upcoming Rural Expo and Trade Show

Organizers of the 2nd Annual Rural Expo and Trade Show say they are looking for teens who are interested in joining a team for the 2nd Annual Bike Building Challenge to be held at the event on Sunday, Apr. 27, at the North Thompson fall fair facility in Barriere.

Four teams will consist of two first responders and two teens, who must put a youth mountain bike together during a timed competition.

Once assembled the bike must be ridden, and judges will also check the bike for assembly and safety.

The winning team will receive a prize, and the assembled bikes are earmarked to be presented to youth within the area who do not have bikes of their own.

If you are a teenager and interested in participating, please contact Jill Hayward at 250-31908023 or email: ruralexpobarriere@gmail.com.
