Winamac Police Department hosts second annual bike rodeo

Summer is right around the corner and that means that kids will be outside enjoying the warm weather on their bicycles. To ensure that all kids are safe and prepared this year, the Winamac Police Department brought back their annual bike rodeo for a second time and it was a success. The rodeo was held on Saturday, May 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Winamac Police Department. Town officers taught participants about road signs, riding on the roadway, crossing a roadway, obstacle avoidance, proper helmet adjustment and bicycle maintenance. Representatives from the Panhandle Pathway assisted with the bike maintenance portion of the event.
