In celebration of Baystate Bike Month, the South Hadley Bike/Walk Committee will host a bike event from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, May 15 at Buttery Brook Park. Bring bikes to get them inspected and ready to ride, learn more about bike safety and rules of the road, and explore use of e-bikes. Competitive Edge Ski & Bike of Easthampton, AAA of Hadley and Greenfield, Valley Bike, and the South Hadley Police Bike Patrol will all be there. Ice cream from the Batch Ice Cream Truck will be available, too! There is no admission and the event is open to all ages.
K-8 children may participate in a bike rodeo featuring informative and fun bicycle education activities, with an instructor provided by Massachusetts Safe Routes to School and MassBike. Parents should register children for the K-8 Bike Rodeo at southhadleyrecreation.org and plan to bring a bike and helmet for each child. All activities take place at Buttery Brook Park on Willimansett Street (Rt. 33) in South Hadley.
