Annual Wallingford Bike Safety Day rides again

Saturday, May 14 at 10 a.m. — WALLINGFORD — On Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the Wallingford Community Bike Safety Day will host its 18th annual event at the Wallingford Elementary School. This fun, interactive and collaboratively sponsored event always has something for all ages, from free helmet fitting to an obstacle course, bike safety inspections, a  911 rescue vehicle, and law enforcement interactions.

In addition, there will be prize give-a-ways, face painting, refreshments and much more.

Bike Safety Day was started in the late 1990s, by Wallingford’s Brad Kelley. Over the years he enlisted the aid of Rotary, many local businesses, and volunteers to fund, facilitate and diversify this project.

The event is modeled from a program initiated by the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute and New England Medical Center in Boston, Mass.

For more information, to make a donation, or to get involved as a volunteer, contact Rotarian Co-Chair Adrian Eisler at 802-446-7011. Wallingford Elementary School is located at 126 School Street.
