Bike Month Kickoff Event: Kids Ride and Bicycle Parade!

Saturday, Apr 28

11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

It’s a weekend of bike events! Kicking off the upcoming Bike Month, and in conjunction with the reveal of the film BIKELANTIS, come share an approximately 3.5 mile ride with Bicycle Lafayette, and Virtuous Cycles leading the way. Parade down Main Street in a no drop group, meaning no rider left behind, at the pace of our slowest rider, with fun to be had by all! Ride past the The Train Depot, then to the Hanna Center playground for a snack before circling back to Virtuous Cycles. If you’ve never ridden on the road, in a highly controlled pack, this is the perfect ride for you, your friends, and your family! All skill levels welcome! (All minors must be accompanied by an adult.)

Gather at Virtuous Cycles by 11 am, for a leave time of 11:15.
