Grab your bikes and hel­mets, gather your friends and take part in the an­nual RCMP bike rodeo in St. An­thony this week.

The lo­cal de­tach­ment and the Fam­ily Re­source Cen­tre will host the event, which has be­come tra­di­tion in the town, Thurs­day.

What has been seen as a great op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate bike safety to the RCMP has be­come a fun and chal­leng­ing ac­tiv­ity for those in­volved.

And with some big prizes, in­clud­ing hel­mets and even a bike, any­one that wants to prac­tice bike safety is wel­come to take part.

The rodeo will take place at the Po­lar Cen­tre, 6-8 p.m. Hel­mets are manda­tory.

In pre­vi­ous years, par­tic­i­pants took part in an ob­sta­cle course de­signed to chal­lenge them on their safety skills and bik­ing abil­i­ties.

Of­fi­cers con­firmed this year’s event will be just as chal­leng­ing, but also a lot of fun.
