Pokagon State Park to host Angola Police Bicycle Rodeo, Aug. 2Pokagon State Park will host a bicycle rodeo Saturday, Aug. 2, at noon at the South Beach parking lot.

The Angola Police Department bicycle patrol officers will conduct the rodeo. Boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 12 are encouraged to attend. Prior registration is not required.

The rodeo is a bicycle skills event that provides an opportunity for bicyclists to practice and develop skills that will help them to become better bicyclists and avoid typical crashes. The goal of the bicycle rodeo is to provide an opportunity for the participants to learn, practice, and demonstrate their bicycle handling skills in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own bicycles. The park has a limited number of bicycles available and will be rented on a first come first served basis. Bicycle helmets are required to participate in the rodeo.

Two bicycles donated by the Angola Meijer store will be given away during the event. Refreshments will be provided by the Fraternal Order of Police.

The bicycle rodeo is free, but the normal park entrance fee of $5 for in-state vehicles and $7 for out-of-state vehicles apply.
