West Carrollton Hosts a Day of Cycling Fun

WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio (WDTN) — West Carrolltown will put a new spin on a previous event.

Bicycle Fun Day will move locations to the Marina Dr. area located at 5457 Marina Drive near the Great Miami River. The event will take place on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Children will learn how to handle their bikes safely and practice cycling on an activity trail. Whitman’s Bike Shop will provide free safety checks for all participants.

Additional activities include a bike magician, fan-favorite Ranger Vic, who offers balloon designs, space to create chalk art, and a K&G Bike Center associate demonstrating a boneshaker-style bike 1880s. The Ice Cream Trolley food truck will be selling ice cream during the event.

City fire and police department vehicles will be made available to Touch-A-Truck. One of the city’s bike officers will lead a short ride along the bike path and administer a Safety Pledge to the children.

“I have been a cycling enthusiast for years. We are delighted to be able to provide children with these opportunities, from activity lessons to learning about bike safety, to interacting with our local safety officers. We will also have several unique bikes and the Ice Cream Trolley is another fun addition. Who doesn’t want ice cream for lunch? said Pegge Bellamy, Events Coordinator.

The program Put a lid on it! campaign to promote bike helmet safety awareness statewide donated 36 bike helmets to be given away while supplies last. Kali Helmets has donated 12 helmets which will be raffled free of charge to attendees at the event.
