It’s rodeo time, only without the bulls and the cattle. Bring the kids and the two-wheelers to the Bike Rodeo at Les Gove Park next to Auburn Community and Event Center. The rodeo will include maintenance checks, helmet fittings, a safety and skills course, a bike course, and free helmets. Bikes and helmets also are available to borrow.
