Today's Bike Rode lasts until 2 p.m. at the Hy-Vee/Shopko/Burger King parking lot in Perry.

Det. Jerome Hill of the Perry Police Department and Kathy Henley of Perry helped fit young riders with bike helmets at Saturday’s Bike Rodeo in Perry, and some rode their two-wheelers through the obstacle course set up in the Hy-Vee parking lot.

The event, part of Bike Month, was free and open to children of all ages. The free helmets were donated by the Dallas County Hospital, which cosponsored the event with the city of Perry, the McCreary Community Building and Hy-Vee.

The Perry Police Department is also offering free bike registration and safety checks at the Bike Rodeo.
