HUB International Bike Rodeo a hit with children

Pre-booking was necessary this year

There were lots of smiles and effort given by children taking part in the annual HUB International Bike Rodeo in Williams Lake Sunday, May 2.

The free event, held in partnership with the City’s recreation services department, Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed, Canadian Tire and the Potato House, promoted bicycle fun and safety and was booked solid from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. with five, hourly time slots available for a total of 60 participants.

Pre-booking was necessary this year in order to keep the event, held in the parking lot at Canadian Tire, in line with COVID-19 health regulations.

The bike rodeo saw Mark Savard from Red Shred’s on hand conducting bicycle safety inspections, while proud parents encouraged their children to rotate through each of the six stations — each incorporating an important element of riding a bike and raising safety awareness.
