Kids Bike Rides and Rodeo on Saturday

With Kidical Mass and Salem's bike safety education program* both on hiatus, there's plenty of opportunity for new youth bike programming.

Stepping into that opportunity, and with the national "Green Apple Day of Service" sponsored by the US Green Building Council Center for Green Schools, Jeremy McVeety has organized a bike festival for Saturday!

The Salem project starts at 9am at Grant with a 9:30 bike ride from McKinley to Grant. There are other events throughout the day at both Grant and McKinley schools:  are bike rides, opportunities to practice skills, basic bike tune-ups for kids - lots of good stuff!

Here's a downloadable flier in English and Spanish:

One or more events could be a great lead-in to Walk+Bike day, October 3rd!

You can also reach Jeremy by email: jeremymcveety [at] gmail (dot) com.

* Earlier this month there was a meeting to get that bike safety education back on two wheels!  Hopefully there will be substantive news soon.
