What is KIT for Kids Bike Day? The goal is to get kids on bikes, teach them how to ride safely, and perform basic maintenance on their own. The event serves a community of children, ages 7-12 years old, who have not had the opportunity to learn to ride. It is free and will incorporate several bike activities focusing on learning to ride, safety, and skills. Bikes and helmets will be provided.
Each child who completes the entire event will go home with a brand-new bike, helmet, and lock.
As such, we are actively seeking donations. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Covid-19 precautions will be in effect and social distancing will be maintained as much as possible. The event is capped at 25 kids.
