The Cooperative Extension, Harmon Field Keiths Triathlon Shop and Polk County Sheriff Department are sponsoring a bicycle skills event to teach bicyclists the skills to be better cyclists. By learning bike handling and traffic skills, one can enjoy bicycling more and reduce the chance of injury. The rodeo will be held March 13 at 1p.m. at Harmon Field. Bicyclists aged eight to 12 are invited to attend. Preregistration is required. Participants will have their bicycles inspected and will then learn about and practice bicycle-handling skills that will increase their enjoyment of bicycling and could some day save their lives. Parents are invited to participate, too. Please register by March 10. To preregister or get more information, contact Polk Cooperative Extension Service at 894-8218.
