Teaching Bike Safety

Safety was the purpose behind a bike rodeo in Winterville Saturday afternoon. Kids, and the parents gathered at the Winterville Recreation Park for a sort of obstacle course. The kids were given helmets if they didn't have one, and were reminded, its required by law that they wear them. Organizers say the goal was simple, preventing injuries.

Bikes were also raffled off, and parents and kids were also able to take in a bite. The police officers, sheriff's deputies, and emergency personnel had hot dogs and drinks on hand for lunch.
