With the development of cycling trails in Allen County and beyond, Iola High School students Jordan Swart and Diamend McFadden are interested in another two-wheeled discipline: BMX cycling.

The LaHarpe teens spoke about their efforts Wednesday at a high school assembly featuring BMX Hall of Famer Darrell Pulliam of Pittsburg.

Organizers announced earlier this year that a BMX dirt track will be added to LaHarpe City Park, and paid for through a local crowdfunding campaign.
