Join a family bike ride

Join a Family Bike Ride, sponsored by the Safe Routes to School program, at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 26, starting at Sahalee Park in Madras.

This family friendly event is a safe place for cyclists to enjoy riding on the paved Willow Creek bike trail and streets of Madras.

For those who don't have a bike, a limited number of kids' bicycles and helmets will be available to borrow. People can also walk the same 2 1/2 mile route if they prefer.

The route heads from the park to J Street, and down to 10th Street, before returning to the park for hot dogs.

Bike helmets are required for all cyclists -- children and adults. If you don't have one, some will be available for a $5 donation.

To help get all the bikes back on the road after winter, local volunteers will be on hand to pump up tires and fix any flats. Flat repair will start at 9 a.m., in the park pavilion.
