Free Helmets, Safety Tips at Malden Bike Rodeo, May 5

The Malden Bike Rodeo is scheduled for Sunday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cambridge Health Alliance, 195 Canal St. in Malden.

Free bicycle helmets (while supplies last) will be given to children who participate in the event, which includes safety instruction from MassBike members. There will also be a fun, “low-stress,” bike ride along the Northern Strand Community Trail in Malden and Everett.

Other highlights include:

  • Test out new LIME bikes
  • Injury prevention and wellness tips for the whole family from American Physical Therapy Association of Massachusetts members
  • Learn more about the Northern Strand Trail updates from Bike to the Sea members
  • Learn about adaptive biking for children with disabilities from Bug’s Bikes

The bicycle helmets are being made available due to the generosity of donors at the Malden YWCA.
