CARLETON GROUND SEARCH & RESCUE INC.
Proudly serving Carleton County and the surrounding area since 1985
CGSR Team Members assisted again this year in the 21th annual Carleton Co-operative Bike Rodeo which was held
on Saturday, June 04/2011 at the Northern Carleton Civic Center in Florenceville, NB. This is historically a co-operative
event between Carleton Co-operative Ltd., the RCMP and Carleton Ground Search & Rescue Inc. Royal Canadian Mounted
Police Const. John Pitcher once again this year conducted a helmet safety check following registration. All participating
bike riders must wear a safe and proper fitting helmet.
Const. Pitcher also spoke to the participants about various safety concerns
and considerations relating to bike riding. Carleton Ground Search & Rescue personnel traditionally participate in this event
by maintaining checkpoints and records, keeping the course traffic flowing smoothly and promoting general safety on the course.
Team provided a new bike helmet again this year as a prize.
Team Members prepare to mark out the bike course.
