Celebrate National Bike Month with Woodbridge’s first Community Bike Fun Ride on Saturday, May 14. This non-competitive bike ride is organized by the Woodbridge Ad Hoc Community Council.
The free event will start and end on the library lawn. The bike ride will have two routes – a short ride that goes to Beecher Road School and back and a longer route that will follow the Town’s bike route from the Library along Center Road to Pease Road, Ansonia Road, Beecher Road and back to the Library.
The Town’s bike route was made possible by generous donations from residents and a matching grant from Sustainable CT. The route connects major destinations in the center of town including the high school, Town Center Campus, Fitzgerald Tract, Beecher Road School, former Country Club of Woodbridge and Pease Place Playground.
Interested cyclists should register on the Town website. Signing up will keep riders in the loop with event details, including any potential weather-related cancellations. It will also help with planning purposes.
Helmets will be required, and costumes and bike decorations are encouraged. The event will begin at 10 am with a bike decorating station and bike safety inspections.
Families participating in the short ride will be treated to a brief entertainment break at the school, thanks to the Beecher Road School Parent Teacher Organization. Following the ride, participants will be invited to stay for live music, lawn games and food trucks.
