EMU Police To Host Bike Rodeo On Saturday

Eastern Michigan University's Police Department will host a Bike Rodeo this Saturday to educate the public on bike safety.  As part of the free event, kids will get to ride their bikes through an obstacle course, get fitted for a helmet and register their bikes with the police department.  Sgt. Joseph Torres is helping organize the Bike Rodeo.

"An officer will record your serial number on your bicycle, some information about your bicycle, and they register it online.  So, if the bicycle is ever stolen or lost, when we recover it, or any police agency recovers it, we can look up that database and get it back to the owner," said Sgt. Torres. 

The event will take place from 10 AM to 2 PM at the EMU Convocation Center.  Both children and adults are encouraged to take their bikes.
