Bikes parked outside library

(Submitted by City of Bowling Green)

The fourth of a series of themed “slow roll” bike rides will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, at 2 p.m. This ride titled, Read and Roll, will be held in partnership with the Wood County Library. Each stop will feature a read aloud of the story, “The Fox and the Bike Ride,” as we travel by several of the mini libraries that have sprouted up around town.

Upon completion of the story, we’ll return to the library for a special snack. The ride will meet and end at the Wood County Library.

Rides are free, family-friendly, and open to everyone. Each rider is required to wear a properly-fitted helmet and ride a correctly-sized bicycle in safe, working mechanical order.

The route for this ride covers five miles. It is highly recommended that young riders, not able to travel this distance on their own, participate via a tow behind trailer or child bike seat. These rides are meant to be more recreational in nature and will travel at a speed comfortable for all riders.

While designed for fun and exploration, monthly rides will also stress the importance of safe riding practices and responsibilities of riders while navigating city streets. Multiple trained leaders will facilitate the ride to ensure that all riders complete the route, including providing assistance for mechanical or personal issues that may arise.

Can’t make it to this ride? Mark your calendar for the October Bike BG ride, Spooks and Spokes, planned for Oct. 28. Decorate your bike and show up in costume for this fun Halloween themed ride. Stay tuned for more details.
