The City of Bowling Green’s next slow roll bike ride, titled Pedal for the Planet, will be held Sunday, April 28th at 2:00 pm. Meet at the Montessori School of Bowling Green Parking Lot and join us for a leisurely ride focusing on our local gem, the Slippery Elm Trail! After the ride, you’ll want to stick around for the annual Earth Day Celebration hosted by 20+ local organizations on the beautiful Montessori Campus!
Rides are free, family-friendly, and open to everyone. Each rider is required to wear a properly-fitted helmet and ride a correctly-sized bicycle in safe, working mechanical order. It is highly recommended that young riders, who are still learning to ride, participate via a tow behind trailer or child bike seat. These rides are meant to be more recreational in nature and will travel at a speed comfortable for all riders.
While designed for fun and exploration, monthly rides will also stress the importance of safe riding practices and responsibilities of riders while navigating city streets. Multiple trained leaders will facilitate the ride to ensure that all riders complete the route, including providing assistance for mechanical or personal issues that may arise.
