An obstacle course where kids can test their bike riding skills and get tips from our volunteer team. Kids learn bike handling skills, the rules of the road, how to ride a bike safely and a little bit of bike repair too! For any kid who can pedal a bike (balance bikes and training wheels are okay – helmets required). We have bikes and helmets to borrow but if you bring your own you won’t have to wait. www.UticaBikeRescue.org | 315.525.9554 | firstname.lastname@example.org
