NO MORE TRAINING WHEELS: Aliyah Overturf, age 7, watches as volunteer bicycle mechanic Ryan Kauffman removes the training wheels from her bicycle during the Sitka Bike Rodeo on Saturday, May 12, 2012, at the U.S. Coast Guard-Air Station Sitka hangar. The Sitka Bike Rodeo is an annual event hosted by the Sitka Rotary Club and U.S. Coast Guard-Air Station Sitka. Children had their bicycles tuned up and registered with the police during the event.
