This Time with Sunshine

We hosted an event just like this one last spring. Well, that event was great, but it took place in the pouring rain. Bad weather made it difficult for everyone who was interested to come and take part. This time, the forecast promises a day that’s 79 degrees and sunny, with a zero percent chance of rain. It’s a do-over, just for you!

Afraid your kids might get antsy while you chat away about bicycle features? We’ve got you covered. The Moms on Wheels event will include bike, scooter and helmet decorating for the kids, as well as face painting and temporary tattoos! There will also be a bike blender making smoothies, and Louis G ice cream. Raffle prizes, too! Come on out for a great day of family fun!
