Despite rainy weather and cool temperatures, many young bicyclists turned out for the fourth annual Bike Rodeo at Eagle View Elementary School on Saturday morning, May 4.

The bicyclists learned riding techniques and safety, including swerving, straight line riding, good stopping and slow riding.

Police officers and reserve officers were on hand to help children through the obstacle courses and teach them about bike safety. Trailblazer Bikes was also at the rodeo to service bikes.

Twelve Trailblazer bikes were given away in a drawing.

The Pequot Lakes PTA hosted the rodeo and gave the first 220 participants T-shirts and water bottles.
