May is National Bike Month and, as such, is replete with some-good-and-bikey fun (have you checked out what’s happening in the Triangle yet?).
There’s a loooooong list of cycling activities planned for next month, but if you want to ease into the action, consider taking part in the Durham Kidical Mass at Northgate Park Group Ride this Saturday, April 28th.
Durham’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) invites kids of all ages to come on over to Northgate Park for the ride. Registration opens at 10am, and the group will set out at 11am. In between there’ll be helmet and bike checks and some road safety basics. Please remember to bring your own bicycle and helmet. Bringing along an extra for sharing is always helpful.
After the helmet and bike check, the group will set out on a ride from Northgate Park up along the Ellerbe Creek Trail and pass where the Big Brontosaurus lives. Riders will get a chance to practice their riding skills alongside friends, family and neighbors in the safety provided by the Ellerbe Creek Trail and Greenway. Cyclists are encouraged to decorated their bikes, and there might just be a few fun surprises along the way.
Volunteers are welcome. Please email Mathew Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org with interest or questions.
