The BikeLIFE! – Hartford Festival is back for a 4th straight year! This year’s going to be bigger and better then ever. Registration is open for youth (8-19 years old) and for a cohort of awesome volunteers.
As in years past, the festival is broken into two parts: Five 2hr Bicycle Safety Courses – Mon, 4/8-Fri, 4/12; and one grand celebration festival on Sat, 4/13.
The five bicycle safety courses are 12pm-2pm during the Hartford Public School’s Spring Break week (Mon, April 8 – Fri, April 12). The courses strategically located around Hartford to reach as many youth as possible. It’s an awesome opportunity to connect with youth that love bikes and riding.
Saturday, April 13th, 12-4pm is the big festival day! Youth that have completed one of the bicycle safety courses will join and get an upcycled bike, helmet, lights and locks. We also need volunteers to help with a whole array of activities from bike distribution to bicycle football referee!
