Ride the Southside to celebrate National Bike Month!

Bring the family to join the Southside Bike Ride at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 19. Enjoy the family friendly, leisurely ride through Fort Worth’s south side neighborhoods on the 8.8 mile route, or ride a shorter 5 mile course – both kicking off at One Safe Place, 777 W. Rosedale St. Activities include vendors and sponsor booths offering health and safety information, a kid’s bike rodeo and members of the Fort Worth police, bike patrol and fire departments will be on hand with their safety equipment. Proceeds from sponsorships and donations benefit the Fort Worth Police Bike Patrol Support Group.

The event is part of Bike! Fort Worth—the city’s comprehensive plan to promote bicycling as a safe and positive transportation alternative—and features some of the new bike lanes being added throughout the city.
