Family Fun Ride 2019 – SUCCESS! 

 

On Saturday September 21st, bicycle advocacy groups joined forces to host a family friendly community bike ride. On this 8 mile slow paced ride, 35 participants joined us to explore some of the bike paths and shared use path’s throughout Ferguson Township and the Borough of State College. Two of our lucky participants won $25 gift cards to our local bike shops. We wanted to thank the following partners who made this event possible: The Borough of State College, Centre Region Planning Agency. CPRP, and Centre Moves. We also wanted to thank all of the volunteers who dedicated their time to make this event possible. Please stay tuned for more community events! Happy Cycling!
