Slow Roll Bike Ride planned to celebrate Earth Day


The City of Bowling Green’s Bicycle Safety Commission will host the first slow roll bike ride of the season in celebration of Earth Day. The ride, titled Pedal for the Planet, will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. Riders should meet at the Montessori School of Bowling Green parking lot and plan for a leisurely ride on the Slippery Elm Trail. After the ride, participants are encouraged to stick around for the annual Earth Day Celebration hosted by local organizations on the Montessori campus.

Rides are free, family-friendly, and open to everyone. Each rider is required to wear a properly-fitted helmet and ride a correctly-sized bicycle in safe, working mechanical order. Multiple trained leaders will facilitate the ride to ensure that all riders complete the route, including providing assistance for mechanical or personal issues that may arise.

Questions about this ride should be directed to the city’s communications director by phone at 419-354-6222 or by email at [email protected].
