Hey kids! Grab your parents and get them to the seventh annual Bike Beaverton on Sept. 7 at City Park. This fun-for-the-whole-family event features a safety rodeo, obstacle course for kids, and a family friendly bike ride.

The Beaverton Police Department will lead the bike safety rodeo, a bicycle obstacle course for kids, at 1 p.m. The family-fun bike ride follows at 2 p.m. The event concludes with a free ice cream social.

Helmets are required for all participants and parents will need to complete a waiver form for themselves and their kids. You can download the forms at BeavertonOregon.gov/Bike or fill one out at the event. Helmet inspections and/or adjustments are offered courtesy of The NW Bicycle Safety Council, as well as replacements for damaged helmets prior to the ride.

Bike Beaverton is presented by the City of Beaverton's Bicycle Advisory Committee and sponsored by Bicycle Transportation Alliance, Bike N' Hike, Northwest Bicycle Safety Council, The Oregonian, Performance Bicycle and Villasport.

Volunteers are also needed for this year's event, and may be asked to assist with rider registration, serve as stationary corner marshals along the route, or to ride along with participants. Volunteers shifts run from 12:30-4 p.m. If interested, email contact information to [email protected]

For more information, including route maps, visit BeavertonOregon.gov/Bike or contact Todd Juhasz at 503-526-2424.
