2007 Carleton Co-operative Ltd. BIKE RODEO, Florenceville, NB
The 17th annual Carleton Co-operative Bike Rodeo was held on Saturday, June 09 - 2007 at the Northern Carleton Civic Center in
Florenceville, NB. This is traditionally a co-operative event between Carleton Co-operative Ltd., the RCMP and Carleton Ground Search
& Rescue Inc. Children of bicycle riding age are placed in their respective age categories and must ride their bicycle through
a small designated course. This popular event is organized by Carleton Co-operative Ltd. who also provide a new bicycle as first prize.
All entrants must undergo a Safety Assessment of their bicycle which is completed on-site by the RCMP . All bike riders must also
wear a helmet. Carleton Ground Search & Rescue personnel participate in this event by maintaining checkpoints and records, keeping
the course traffic flowing smoothly and promoting general safety on the course. Our Team also provides yearly a new bike helmet as
second prize. Everyone who enters leaves the event a winner as this year the organizers provided all the participants with a grab
bag and a new water bottle.
