Rain date declared! Now 1 week later: Saturday 7/20.  


Location: Picnic Grove at Cambridge Crossing

This will be our 6th crowd sourced event  (and first summer version) to benefit parents considering cargo bikes to transport their children by helping them to be able talk to a variety current parent owners that live in their community and try out the bikes.   The goal is to supplement information from online and bike shop visits.  Test driving in a park can be easier than in the streets around a bike shop for new riders.   It is also a fun social event for everyone.      

This may or may not be an event suitable for children, especially for the owners-many children are not patient enough to wait patiently while adults speak, your mileage may vary!   We will bring a small amount of our outdoor play equipment that we have at our bike rides.

Bring a helmet for any adult that is going to test drive and any child that is going to test ride.

NEW LOCATION, we will meet at the tables called Picnic Grove in Cambridge Crossing.   It is on bike paths you can use for the test drives.  

Shoppers will have to leave their state or federal photo IDs with the owners of the bike while test driving.   

Light refreshments provided!   Feel free to bring some too.

If you appreciate the work we do, feel free to donate!

Family Bike Ride receives support for 2024 event expenses from these sponsors, who may be on site to supplement information provided by volunteers.    We believe in providing a wide range of opinions and options don't favor any particular manufacturer, bike shop, or repair service.
