Family Bike Ride – Request for Help
I’m thinking of organizing a family bike ride during Bike Month in May and would love to speak with other like-minded people about getting something going. It’s just a thought at this point, but the idea would be to do a ride for people with young kids too young to ride on their own and who typically put their kids in bike seats or trailers.
The general idea is to meet somewhere family friendly and convenient, such as JJ Byrne Playground on 5th Avenue, and then ride up to Prospect Park for a lap or two followed by a bring-your-own picnic. I’m open to other ideas, but that seems easy enough and the right balance of street riding and protected lane and park riding. Overall, I’d love to encourage more people to ride with their kids. It’s easy and safe, especially in a big group.
I’d want to talk with someone who could help organize. Who knows? Even though there’s nothing on the Bike Month event list yet, maybe someone already has an idea like this in the works. See the about page for my email address or leave a comment below.
