BIDDEFORD — Some children have waited patiently all summer for Cub Scout Pack 308’s annual Bike Rodeo, but this weekend that long wait is officially over.

The Cub Scouts are inviting area children and their families to attend a Bike Rodeo from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the parking lot of Biddeford Primary School.

The event is free and open to all kids in grades 1 through 5 and will focus on teaching bike safety, riding instruction, and safe biking.

Children should bring their bicycles and will be able to participate in a number of activities that promote responsible bicycle operation.

Activities include bike riding safety skills; bike safety checks; basic bicycle maintenance and riding instruction.

Instructors also will provide tips about proper bicycle helmet use and how to make adjustments to bike helmets.

There also will be an obstacle course and lots of free giveaways for kids sponsored by local merchants.

At the event, forms will be available for boys in grades 1 to 5, who are interested in joining the Cub Scouts.

Parents also are encouraged to attend and participate.

The following organizations made generous donations to help the Cub Scouts stage this annual event: People’s Choice Credit Union of Biddeford, Matt Simmons from Edward Jones of Biddeford; Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution; Active Chiropractic of Saco; Methot Insurance of  Biddeford; and the Biddeford-Saco Rotary Club.
