The fun started off in the parking lot at the Katittavik Centre with the serving of hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshments. Activities included the driving of a pedal go-kart while wearing goggles that simulate alcohol impairment.
Event sponsors and partners donated many prizes, including brand-new bicycles and helmets.
To make hot dogs, you need sausages and buns; to go biking, you need a bicycle and a helmet, said Captain Shaun Longstreet Sr. of the KRPF. When you go biking, always wear a helmet. You never know.
Most kids participated to the closing event: a bike parade in the streets of Kuujjuaq.
Bike rallies will also be organized in Kangiqsujuaq, Ivujivik and Inukjuak.
