TRENTON – A bike rodeo will be held today at the Trenton rink in recognition of Bike Week.
The event is being hosted by the New Glasgow Regional Police Service and the Trenton Fire Department and will run from 10 a.m. to noon.
Const. Ken MacDonald of the New Glasgow police said the goal of the rodeo is to share information about the laws surrounding riding a bike as well as to give youth a chance to learn some basic skills before they venture out into the community.
“It’s open to everyone, whether they’re experienced or not,” he said.
He said more and more bikes are on the road all the time and it’s important for everyone to keep up to date on the rules.
“Road safety from bikes to vehicles is a shared responsibility.”
