Nearly 200 kids participate in Landon Bos Bicycle Rodeo
NORFOLK - One of a parent’s worst nightmares is that their child will come up missing. At the 6th Annual Landon Bos Memorial Bicycle Rodeo parents were able to pick up child DNA kits to use in they are lost or abducted. Children 12-and-under were also able to receive helmet fittings, have their bikes inspected, and learn about the rules of the road. Free bike licensing was also offered. Police Chief Bill Mizner said even though they don’t go out looking for bikes that aren’t licensed, it’s still important to get it done as it mkes it easier for officers to identify the owners of bikes that are lost or stolen. For those who missed out on getting their bikes licensed for free, Mizner said that residents can still get that done at the city office for a fee. Nearly 200 kids took part. The Bike Rodeo is a memorial for 7-year-old Landon Bos, who died in 2007 as the result of a car/pedestrian accident.
