Connecting residents to each other and community organizations while encouraging bicycle safety and use. Free helmets, locks and lights for all!
Bicyclists of all ages are invited to join a community ride around Carlisle’s Northside neighborhood. The event will provide free helmets, bike lights and bike locks to neighborhood riders who participate. Dickinsonians and their families are invited to share in the special day with members of the surrounding community. All participants are required to sign a waiver, and participants under age 14 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult on the ride. Cyclists are encouraged to gather at Hope Station for free bike tune-ups and safety checks (starting at 12:00 pm) courtesy of The Handlebar, LifeCycle, Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg and Cole’s Bicycles. The ride will depart from Hope Station promptly at 1:30 p.m. and travel 3.3 miles to waypoints including the YWCA and Project SHARE, ending at New Life Community Church. Each of these partners will also offer a bike-related activity or demonstration. The event is sponsored by Dickinson’s Center for Sustainability Education. It is co-sponsored by Cole’s Bicycles; Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates Architects; Hope Station; New Life Community Church (LifeCycle); Partnership for Better Health; Project SHARE; Raven’s Claw Honor Society; Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg; and YWCA Carlisle.
