Rankin Inlet Bike Rodeo Rustles Up Safe Riders

Some 60 local youngsters came out to learn about bicycle safety and have a fun ride at the Rankin Inlet Bike Rodeo on July 14. Hosted by the Rankin Inlet RCMP Detachment and Nunavut Public Health, this event aims to make bicycling safer, especially for younger riders.

The event offered a lesson on safe riding, a safety equipment check and skills testing to ensure that everyone is prepared for a fun time on two wheels.

AREVA was a sponsor of the event and provided bicycle helmets for the young riders from Rankin Inlet.Picture 085
