Bikes tuned up for summer riding
Some 40 bicycles were tuned up for summer riding season and 15 kids participated in the Bike Rodeo to practice bicycle safety during last Saturdays Bike Roundup at the Madras Aquatic Center.
The event received financial support from Bicycle Rides Northwest. Brian Potwin from Commute Options of Bend put the rodeo course together and kids who rode it received a free T-shirt saying Avoid the Pain, Helmet Your Brain. Twenty bike helmets were also distributed to kids for free.
A total of 18 volunteers helped at the event, including Scottie Henry, Minda Morton, Maura Schwartz, Jamie Smith and Lou Vasquez.
