The Friends of Madison County Parks & Trails teamed up with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office to put on a bike rodeo as part of Celebrate Trails Day on April 27. The event took place at the Prairie Grass Trailhead in London. Participants could bring their own bikes or borrow a bike to ride through the rodeo course where they learned about bike safety. Each participant received a free bike helmet.
