Ascension - Saint Matthew's Third Annual Bike Rodeo


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Kids from three to 12 years old got a chance to hone their bike riding skills and test their safe driving knowledge at the Ascension-St. Matthew's Church Third Annual Bike Rodeo Saturday.

Clockwise from top left, young riders get instructions on the course from adult supervisors at the starting line.

Officer Ratcliffe of the Price Police Department conducts safety inspections and registrations for the bikers.

Part of the test is seeing if bike riders know they should stop at railroad crossings and walk, not ride, their bikes across the tracks when the tracks are clear.

Riders also have to show they know how observe stop signs and how to yield right of way to traffic, including school buses.

The event was sponsored by the church, the Price Area Singletrack Society, Dr. David Nichols, the Southeastern Utah Health District and the Price City Police Department.

USU Eastern provided its striping machine so the lane markers could be painted instead of chalk-drawn on the course this year.
