  • The Rodeo is coming to Eastern Michigan University—the annual Bike Rodeo, that is! EMU will host its 7th annual Bike Rodeo on Saturday, June 15th. The event aims to promote bike safety for youngsters and create community engagement between kids and police officers. In addition to riding and learning from EMU’s bicycle officers, the free, family-friendly event provides free bicycle safety checks, helmets and bicycle locks. EMU Police Sgt. Joseph Torres joins WEMU's David Fair to discuss what’s in it for area kids and families and what the officers get out of the interactions.
