Bike Rodeo on June 25

HARDWICK – The Hardwick Trails Committee is hosting a bike rodeo for children of all ages on June 25 at Hazen Union school from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Activities will include free helmets, free bike tune ups, and a selection of bicycle activities: choose between the “bike rodeo” skills course, pro tips at the pump track at Atkins Field, or a guided mountain bike ride on the Hardwick Trails. There will also be a learn-to-ride zone for children who need to learn to ride a bicycle without training wheels, led by Bevin Barber-Campbell, who has helped hundreds of children ditch their training wheels. The event will begin with a bicycle safety talk, led by a certified safe cycling instructor, and wrap up with free ice cream and a story time of a bike-themed book.

The rain date is June 26. Parents are asked to remain on site with younger children. No pre-registration is required. Contact us on the Hardwick Trails Facebook page with questions. Other sponsors of the event include the Hardwick Recreation Committee, NEKProsper! and the Hardwick Kiwanis.
