The annual Tim Hortons Bike Rodeo is coming up Saturday, May 4 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Canadian Tire Parking Lot.

It’s an opportunity for kids to get their bikes ready to ride, and to learn a few valuable tips on riding safety for the season.

All children who can ride tricycles or bicycles are encouraged to attend. Participants are asked to bring their bicycle and helmet along, and must register for this free program by calling the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 250-398-7665.

The bike rodeo promotes safe bicycle riding habits, which will reduce accidents involving children.

A course with a series of several safety stations will give participants the opportunity to learn correct riding skills.

A thorough safety inspection of the bicycle is the first stop on the course. Professionals will also check participants’ bike helmets to make sure it fits well and is being worn properly.

The remaining bike safety stations will focus on riding techniques and skills. Children will be asked to ride through courses of figure eights, circles and parallel lines with the emphasis being on how to control their bike.

Archers win indoor championships

Two members of the Cariboo Archers were in Cranbrook March 30-31 for the B.C. Indoor Target Championships.

Fred Streleoff and Al Campsall made the 11-hour jaunt to Cranbrook where their time spent travelling paid off.

Streleoff dominated the competition for his first ever B.C. Indoor target championship.

Campsall, likewise, put together the best overall score March 30 to take the title in his division. It was his 14th B.C. championship.

The show goes April 20-21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and again from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Table entries are $25 per day, while tickets will be $5 at the door.
