Despite the winds and a few route changes for some of the longer rides, many kids and families got out on their bikes to enjoy the Around the Bay in a Day Family Bike Ride yesterday.
20km Family Bike Ride Entirely on Closed RoadsThis year the entire 20km Family Bike Ride was on closed roads which was a great incentive for so many parents. We spotted a few ByK Riders amongst the nearly 10,000 participants who no doubt were so proud of themselves for completing such a big ride.

Ride2School Team Pump Track Fun For Kids After the RideAfter the ride, kids were treated to a carnival of fun - face painting, animal farm and even a pump track! The Ride2School Team from the Bicycle Network had a Pump Track setup for fun and for those who wanted to try out some new bikes, ByK had a selection to have a go on.
