^ MD of Pincher Creek Community Policing Officer RCMP Cst. Rodney LeGrow, Town of Pincher Creek Bylaw Officer John Herasemluk, and organizer/EMT/Firefighter Kate Feist hand out positive affirmation tickets to young cyclists wearing the gear at the Pincher Creek Bike Rodeo
The first annual Pincher Creek Bike Rodeo happened in the MCC Arena on Thursday evening May 28, allowing young cyclists from 76 families to avoid the drizzle outside and concentrate on learning more about how to signal, navigate turns, read road signs, and be aware on the road, no matter how rough or rocky. The kids had a lot of fun with the novelty of riding their bikes inside the arena and having a hot dog and juice picnic indoors. One of the highlights of the event was when the winners of the 'Wear the Gear' bicycle draw were announced. The day was a collaborative effort put on by Pincher Creek Emergency Services, local RCMP Officers, Pincher Creek Bylaw, Napi Friendship Association, Brighter Futures, Parent Link, and a dedicated band of volunteers working together to make Pincher's young cyclists safer.
