SALT LAKE CITY — UTA’s annual Bike Bonanza will be held this Friday, May 17, at the Gallivan Plaza.
The Bike Bonanza goal is to educate families about bike safety and bicycling as a green transportation alternative. The celebration will have fun activities for the entire family, including giveaways, music, children’s activities, free food and more.
Children are invited to test out their bicycling skills in the Bike Rodeo. Salt Lake police officers will lead children through a bicycling obstacle course and teach them bike safety tips. Kids of all ages who are old enough to ride bicycles are invited to participate. Bikes will also be on hand for children who do not bring their own bicycles.
UTA Bike Bonanza organizer Cheryl Anderson said she hopes the event encourages more people to think about bicycling and other sustainable modes of transportation.
“If we all commit to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle by using mass transit, vanpooling, carpooling, bicycling and walking, we will be doing our part to help the environment and Utah.”
Gallivan Plaza is located at 239 S. Main. The Bike Bonanza will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. A timeline of activities is at www.utarideshare.com.
