Get ready to shift into gear for the free annual Emergency Services Bike Rodeo.

The Terrace RCMP Detachment is organizing a community bike rodeo May 24, 2019 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Skeena Mall parking lot.

Stella and Carson Nicolai were all smiles and safety during last year’s annual bike rodeo.

 

The bike rodeo is an annual favourite for kids and emergency service workers alike, said Cst Crystal Evelyn, Community Liaison Officer for Terrace RCMP. It’s a great event that teaches kids the importance of bike safety in a fun and interactive way, while also introducing them to emergency service workers who are there to support and help them.

The free event will take place at the northwest corner of the Skeena Mall Parking lot. On hand will be fire departments, Canadian Rangers, Sheriffs, Northern Brain Injury Association, Terrace Search and Rescue, Salvation Army, and Terrace RCMP to interact with youth and help teach them important bike safety information.

All youth participating will receive a hotdog supper sponsored by Save On Foods and Safeway, gift bags, and a chance to win prizes sponsored by ICBC, Sportchek, Canadian Tire, Western Financial Group, and many other local partners.

The bike rodeo is a hands-on, interactive day, designed to teach children fundamental biking skills, road safety, and rules of the road. Bike rodeos take place across the province of BC and are conducted in a safe and positive environment.
