SALMON RIVER - Children and bicycles were the only thing flooding Deuville's rink on Saturday.
Eager kids from across the county participated in the Truro Police Service's annual Bike Rodeo, an event where children are taught proper bicycle safety.
"I liked biking behind the police car," said Will Somers of Truro.
The four-year-old was eager to participate in Saturday's activities.
" I think it's great to be part of a big group of bikers," said Sandra Somers, Will's mother.
A total of 86 participants cycled through a number of skill testing stations set up inside the rink.
Aaron Fox of Truro navigated his way through the pylons with ease.
"I like when you have to go on the straight line," said the seven-year-old.
Jewel Woolfitt was all smiles when she
won a bike that had been donated by a local business.
Despite the drastic height difference between the four-year-old and her new bike, she was still happy to win.
"She'll grow into it," her parents laughed.
Constable Aaron Smith deemed the event a "complete success.
"We've been hearing positive feedback," said Smith, "It was very well organized."
The bike rodeo is part of Colchester County Bike Week, an annual event to promote and celebrate cycling.
The rodeo has been around for over three decades.

    I took my two children to the bike rodeo and they had a blast. It was great for them to meet the officers and learn bike safety. A big thank you to the Truro Police Service !!
