RIB MOUNTAIN, Wis. (WSAU) - Kids are invited to come out and get a free bike inspection in Rib Mountain today.

It's the Annual Bike Rodeo. Leaders say it's a chance for community leaders to ensure kids are being safe with their bikes at the start of the spring and summer months.

The program kicks off at 10 am at Rib Mountain Elementary with bike testing and inspections. Safe Kids Coalition from Aspirus will be doing helmet checks. There's a skills course for kids, as well as a family bike ride.

Kids will have a chance to sign up for prizes as well. Administrator Gaylene Rhoden says she's excited to have so much support from the community. "I think there's 8 bikes back there from Walmart and Rib Mountain Cycle donated one as well. Biggby Coffee has been a sponsor as well." Kohls employees will be volunteering their time to help run the event.

The event runs till 1 pm.
