The Falmouth Police Department's Bike Rodeo gave away four new bikes on Wednesday, July 18 at the Summer Recreation Program at Southern Elementary. Falmouth Police Officer Aaron Arnsperger took the program's children for a ride to McDonald's and back along the private streets by the Athletic Park before arriving at the school and drawing theĀ  lucky winners.

Office Arnsperger, certified to teach bicycle safety, taught the 30 children in attendance about the importance of safety equipment such as head gear and hand signals.
