Pass the pedals sponsored by Sussex Bike and Sport Shop
Used bikes will be professionally refit, repaired, and distributed to Sussex County families through United Way's network of human service organizations. Bikes can be dropped off the day of the event at Sussex County Community College at Building E between 8:00am and 2:00pm.
FREE BIKE CLASSES FOR KIDS!
Kids ages 5-13 learn to ride from Transoptions
This outdoor hands-on class teaches the safe, easy, and effective way to learn to ride on two wheels. Using the "balance first" method, parents help get their children rolling while the child does most of the work. Participants learn the basics of balancing, starting, stopping, and steering a bike as well as proper helmet fit and adjustment. Classes will be held the day of the event at Sussex County Community College at Building E.
