Sometimes all our kids need is a lil push to take off on their bikes. This event is everything that’s great about riding bikes and is for very young riders! Fun with friends/peers, encouragement and riding tips with fun clownie people who ride bikes all the time, a safe riding space away from traffic, taking breaks to play on the playground and building confidence in ourselves, in our beautiful urban park surrounded by trees!
So here’s what we do:
We meet at the playground near Francis St. entrance to group up. You’ll find Olive in a giant bow and Dingo in a tophat–each with tall bicycles. Grown-ups, please plan to supervise your kiddos as they ride depending on your child’s skill level. You could easily stand in the center grassy area and watch them ride the loop. Bring, helmets, water, and a snack, yes!
We’ll make sure our bikes are ready for action, sing a song, and then we ride the quarter mile loop. It’s paved and away from cars but it can be a tad bumpy on parts. We ride the loop a couple times with playground breaks in between. All the things we can do to practice good bike skills, we do! We ride, we slide, we encourage our friends, we repeat!
We stay at Creston for the whole ride and end in the “secret park” as we call it, still on site.
Event is FREE but donations in cash or Venmo are totally accepted for balloons and popsicles at the end of the ride and for Olive and Dingo community cycling efforts. Keep being awesome and so will we!
