Local youngsters saddled up for the first Poynette Police Department bike rodeo on Saturday, June 17.
Attendees registered and received their bike licenses before going through an obstacle course which covered safety elements such as hand signals.
Children without helmets or those that didn’t fit right went home with new ones. All participants also won a prize for completing the course.
Poynette-Dekorra Fire/EMS Department members and local officials were also on hand to help during the rodeo.
The department will also be hosting a bike rodeo for Arlington children on July 8, from 9-11 a.m. at Fireman’s Park, 110 Park St., Arlington.
