Annual Wallingford Bike Day blends safety and fun

Saturday, May 13, 10 a.m.—WALLINGFORD—On Saturday,  May 13, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m., the Wallingford Community Bike Safety Day will host its 19th annual event at the Wallingford Elementary School. This fun, interactive event always has something for all ages, from free helmet fitting to an obstacle course; from bike safety inspections to 911 rescue vehicle and law enforcement interactions, and more. In addition, there will be prize give-a-ways, face painting, refreshments and much more.

Bike Safety Day started in the late 90, by Wallingford’s Brad Kelley. Over the years he enlisted the aid of Rotary, many local businesses, and volunteers to fund, facilitate and diversify this project. The event is modeled from a program initiated by the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute and New England Medical Center, Boston, Mass.
