A group of city and state biking enthusiasts has put together a free event set for Saturday, Sept. 21, detailing the ABCs of Baltimore Family Biking for seasoned riders right down to the newbies, who are curious but concerned about taking their tots on the road.
The two-hour get-together will feature:
- a show-and-tell by "pedal parents" who will present their gear and answer questions about family bike safety and logistics,
- refreshments from Red Emma and Thread Coffee,
- local bike retailers,
- a workshop on decorating your ride from Bikeadelic Decorations,
- and a bike safety workshop for kids.
The ABCs event will run from 10 a.m. to noon in the parking lot outside the Baltimore County Public Schools district office at 200 E. North Avenue.
Organizers include the Baltimore Family Bike Party, which arranges monthly rides; the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance; Bike Maryland and Bikemore. The group is also looking for volunteers to help out at the event.
Tricia Bishop is a new mom who covers family issues and higher education for the Baltimore Sun.
