(EVENT page)

Downtown Ferndale will welcome the two wheel crowd to town this Thursday, May 18th from 4-8pm when they team with the Ferndale Parks and Recreation Department and Ferndale Rotary for the second year to bring you the Downtown Bike Rodeo. Held in conjunction with National Bicycle Month, this event celebrates bike riding for fun, for transportation and for exercise.

Participants that ride their bikes to Schiffer Park (Planavon at Nine Mile Road) can ride the skills course, presented by the Ferndale Police Department and League of Michigan Bicyclists, receive bike safety checks and minor tune ups courtesy of the Downtown Ferndale Bike Shop, and take a tour of the Ferndale Fire Department’s Fire Safety House. Kids can also receive a FREE bike helmet, courtesy of the Ferndale Rotary and residents can have their bike licensed by the Police Department (*must have bicycle present). The Ferndale Memorial Association will be hosting a station where kids can decorate their bikes – and then hopefully come back to town on May 29th and ride in the 99th Annual Memorial Day Parade.

The evening ends with a short family-friendly bike ride through Ferndale, highlighting Ferndale’s bike lanes and routes as well as providing tips for healthy and safe riding Cyclists are encouraged to ride into town, check out the Rodeo, utilize the on-street bike racks to park their vehicle and then visit their favorite restaurant or retailer.
