To support middle school students to ride more independently on our busy streets, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) and the Wellesley Police Dept (WPD) are sponsoring this event with Wellesley’s Natural Resources Commission, Sustainable Wellesley and Wellesley Green Schools.
The goal is to create a mindset that bikes should be treated as a vehicle, and to build overall skills and confidence for riding safely and legally to school and throughout town.
Registrants and a parent/caregiver should meet at the Wellesley High School parking lot to learn some “rules of the road” before enjoying a guided bike train along Wellesley’s beautiful Brook Path and some on-street riding.
Safe Routes To Schools will offer some giveaways and Winnie the WPD community resource service dog will be there to greet the kids as they embark upon the ride!
The first 25 registrants will get a free J.P. Licks gift card and all participants can win a bike accessory raffle item from Pappa Wheelies!
Rain date is June 11th.
