A Photo from the December Kids Bike Parade
Adults and children ages 4-7 rode together for our December Kids Bike Parade. We got together for an evening ride around the neighborhood on Oakland's Slow Streets. We made a stop in the middle on Lawton Avenue to see some of the fancy holiday light decorations. There was unfortunately no pizza this time because Sliver was closed, but the kids still had fun riding together.
Group riding helps get children excited about riding their bikes
Our bike parades are a way for kids to have COVID-safe fun while building community through bicycling. At each of our bike parades, adults ride along with the children to make sure they're safe. We provide childrens bike lights to make sure they're visible to us, each others, pedestrians, and the occasional driver. Group bike rides in general are a great way to get children active and involved in cycling.
