Read & Roll Bike Ride – September 30

The fourth of a series of themed “slow roll” bike rides will be held Sunday, September 30th at 2pm.  This ride titled, Read and Roll, will be held in partnership with the Wood County Library.  Each stop will feature a read aloud of the story, “The Fox and the Bike Ride,” as we travel by several of the mini libraries that have sprouted up around town.  Upon completion of the story, we’ll return to the Library for a special snack.

The ride will meet and end at the Wood County Library.  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.  The route for this ride covers 5 miles.  It is highly recommended that young riders, not able to travel this distance on their own, 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.
