Roll Out a Bike Party Create a progressive party for your family and friends that really sets the pace
Send invitations • Be sure to remind guests the party is BYOB: Bring Your Own Bike (& helmet!) • Attach the invitation to a bike bell or place it inside a reusable water bottle with confetti
Make guests feel special • Give each guest a number – and pin it to the back of their shirt as if it were a professional bike race • Pair teens with younger kids who need mentoring, help and encouragement
Map a fun-filled route Select a route with safe stopping points that allow a variety of experiences, as well as bike racks for secure parking • Look for parks with dirt or paved bike paths and take a detour through the park • Set up obstacle courses with cones at school playgrounds • Stop half way for a treat at a frozen yogurt shop or convenience store • Ride to a nearby lake for a canoe race • Make it a rolling scavenger hunt or treasure hunt with clues and prizes along the way
Safety first • Teens: Enforce the rules of the road by serving as the group’s monitor and safety patrol • Bring friends along to ride in the front, middle and back of the group to encourage everyone to ride safely • Use a whistle or your bike bell to alert riders to danger
