‘Spooks & Spokes’ community bike ride planned

(Submitted by the City of Bowling Green)

The City of Bowling Green’s last slow roll bike ride for 2018 will have a Halloween twist.  The ride, titled Spooks & Spokes, will be held Sunday, Oct. 28, at 2 p.m.

Riders are encouraged to decorate their bikes and dress up in bike friendly costumes. This ride will begin and end at Wintergarden Park.  Stops will feature local lore, treats, and some of Bowling Green’s most (allegedly) haunted locations. Upon completion of the ride, we’ll return to Wintergarden Park for S’mores and a fire.

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.

This will be the last slow roll ride for 2018.  Rides will resume again in Spring 2019.
