It's partly a test of skills, but mostly a good reason to get together with other like-minded riders.  The annual Biker Rodeo sponsored by the local chapter of ABATE - A Brotherhood Aimed Toward Education - is coming up this Saturday at the Cottage Hills V.F.W.  The rodeo is comprised of a series of events to test a rider's ability on two wheels, according to ABATE's Ed Show.

 

One of the new competitions is the Barrel Race.
