    Join us at Scioto Audubon Metro Park for a Bike Safety lesson on the Greenway Trails!

    This event is open to everyone, so bring your kids, your friends, and of course, yourself, to take this crash course on how NOT to crash on the trails.

    We will be going over bike safety on roads and on trails, and teach participants the best places to ride their bikes in the Metro Parks!  After that, we will take a group bike ride on the Scioto Greenway Trail!

    The Greenway Trails connect neighborhoods all across the city... Which trail is closest to you?  

    See where these trails can take you!  Join us at Scioto Audubon.  Don't forget your bike, and your helmet!
