Take part in the Rules of the Ride event on Saturday, June 10!
This annual event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Wellesley High School parking lot and is open to students in Grades 5 through 8.
The goal is to create a mindset that bikes should be treated as vehicles. Participants will learn important bike safety skills and confidence so they can ride safely and legally to school and throughout Wellesley.
Register in advance using the signup link. The first 25 participants to sign up will get a free J.P. Licks gift card.
On June 10, registrants and a parent or caregiver should meet at Wellesley High School to learn some "rules of the road" followed by a guided bike train along Fuller Brook Park and some on-street riding.
The event is sponsored by Safe Routes to School (SRTS) and the Wellesley Police Department, with the support of the Natural Resources Commission, Sustainable Wellesley, and Wellesley Green Schools.
Participants will also have the chance to meet WPD Community Service dog Winnie and be entered to win a special prizes.
The rain date for this event is Sunday, June 11.
