The BikeLIFE! This yearly Hartford Festival for youth ages 7-19 is broken into two parts: Five 2 hour bicycle safety courses held throughout the week of June 21st to June 25th followed by the BIKELIFE festival on Saturday, June 26th.
The five bicycle safety courses are 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM and are strategically located around Hartford to reach as many youth as possible. In order to qualify for a bicycle at the Saturday BIKELIFE Festival, each youth must register and take one of the safety classes. It’s an awesome opportunity to connect with youth that love bikes and riding.
On the big festival day youth that have completed one of the bicycle safety courses will come together and get an up-cycled bike, helmet, lights, and bike lock. We also need volunteers to help with a whole array of activities from check-in, to bicycle matching, to helmet art, and the always popular bike toss.
