The third annual North Bend Bicycle Rodeo will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 7 at North Bend Elementary School. The goal is to promote bicycle safety and skill enhancement for all bicyclists.

The King County Sheriff’s Office and several local merchants are sponsoring the event. They will conduct equipment checks, performance checks and minor adjustments and repairs to the bicycles for safety.

Children attending the event will be eligible to enter a drawing to win one of two 20-inch bicycles that are to be given away. Participants with a bicycle will receive a free bicycle helmet, while supplies last. A skills course will be set up on the school grounds, as well. In addition to the cycling, free hot dogs, chips and drinks will be served. Call (425) 888-4433 for information.
