For children in grades K-6 that are comfortable riding a bike independently. Celebrate safe biking and review bike riding skills with MA Safe Routes to Schools instructors on Sunday May 1st at the Newton South High School. Children must have their own bike and helmet to participate, and an adult must attend. Pre-registration is required and opens on April 1st at 7:00 pm.
This program is geared towards students in Kindergarten through 6th grade at Newton Schools that are comfortable riding a bike independently. In order to participate:
-Each child needs to bring their own bike. Please make sure the bike fits the child and is in usable condition (chain is intact, brakes work, tires are not flat, etc)
-Each child needs to bring and wear a properly fitting helmet.
-Each child must have a parent or adult present for the duration of the program. Adults, we want you to learn the skills your child is learning so you can help to reinforce the skills learned when you go home.
Parents/adults will have an opportunity to meet with volunteers from Bike Newton and Newton Safe Routes to Schools to learn more about biking opportunities in Newton.
