Bicycles circled an obstacle course Saturday on the corner of Kelly and Johns streets at a village-sponsored bicycle rodeo. The free program included bike and car seat inspections, safety information, fingerprinting, refreshments, and a visit by Ronald McDonald. Wellington firefighters fitted and passed out free helmets. Members of Main Street Wellington, village police officers, South Lorain County Ambulance District workers, Boy Scouts, and students from Wellington High School volunteered to make the event a success.
