Kids on Bikes’

2018 Great Bicycle Carnival, Sept. 15, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., kidsonbikes.net.
annual group ride and carnival celebration always draws a crowd, and this year it’s even bigger. All-ages group rides, guided by Kids on Bikes volunteers, start from six different locations (see website for details) and cover a variety of terrain. Young’uns and newbie riders might feel most comfortable joining the “Shake It on Shooks Run” team, which covers only 2 flat miles. Ambitious families can tackle the “Pedal Station Super Powers” route, 5.8 miles on street and trail. Everyone is encouraged to dress to their team’s theme (from hippies to cowboys) and stick around Middle Shooks Run Park for games and music afterward.
