The training wheels are off and your heart is beating a mile-a-minute as your little one takes off down the road! Ensure your kids' bikes and helmets are safe this weekend at the free bike rodeo in Sartell.

The FREE kids 2012 bike rodeo will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at Sartell City Hall (125 Pinecone Rd. N).

Sartell police officers will be on hand along with others to complete bike inspections to ensure the bicycles are safe. They will also run children through a bike operation course.

A limited number of helmets will be available for those children that do not have one or the officers find that it fits improperly or is unsafe.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Health Partners in Sartell for donating helmets and to Revolution Cycle & Ski for conducting the bicyle safety checks.
