Mission Bike Rodeo at Fraser River Heritage Park

The first Bike Rodeo of the summer takes place on Sunday, June 2 from 10a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fraser River Heritage Park is hosting its very first Bike Rodeo this summer. The event takes place on Sunday, June 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Mission’s Bike Rodeo will aim to target different levels of riders and different age groups. Activities include a bicycle skills course, learn to ride, bicycle and road safety, as well as bike races and the 529 Garage.

The Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association will be on site and The Bear Cub will host a kids’ bike race – offering all levels of riders three route options. All races are timed and the kids do as many laps as possible in the time limit.

• Beginner – for all riders from run bikes up to 20 inches wheeled youngsters just learning to mountain bike.

• Intermediate – for confident young riders looking for a green-trail race-inspired challenge.

• Advanced – for the keen young mountain biker in your life that wants to throw down for a one-hour lap of green and blue trails.

The races take place on the trails in Fraser River Heritage Park. Entry fee is $5 and includes a finisher’s medal.

Mission RCMP crime prevention office volunteers will be on hand, providing free bike registration in the 529 Garage program.

It is an online registry that tracks bicycle ownership information and can be used to help locate bikes in the event they are stolen.

Participants sign up with their email address and their bike’s pertinent information such as make, model, year and serial number. 529 Garage is a country-wide program and communities that have been using it have seen a significant reduction in the number of thefts and an increase in the amount of stolen bikes being returned to owners.
