The Pediatric Associates Foundation is recognizing Florida Bike Month and the importance of bike safety by hosting the second annual Kids Bike Ride to Safety on Saturday, March 17 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Brian Piccolo Sports Park in Hollywood. The event, co-hosted by Cox Media Group, will educate parents and children about the safety aspects of riding a bicycle on streets and the many dangers that they should be aware of.
This free event will give participants the opportunity to practice and develop skills via obstacle and skill courses. Bikers of all skill levels, from experienced riders to those using training wheels, will be given hands-on training in bike safety. Complimentary helmet and bicycle safety inspections will also be available.
Last year’s inaugural event welcomed more than 1,000 attendees, and more than 400 children received a free helmet.
