September 22, 2021
For some, it was their first rodeo. And for the others, it might well have been the best.
The 2021 Mount Vernon Elks Lodge Bike Rodeo, on Sept. 12 meshed with the grand opening of the new Little Mountain bike trails, a festive occasion years in the making.
Despite rainy conditions, there was a good turnout of children and parents for the rodeo, which taught kids cycling skills like checking the air in their tires and how to use hand signals in traffic.
They also had the opportunity to ride over and around obstacles and practice delivering the Weekly News and other newspapers.
